"The overall effect of the I^Handbook is to document the existence of profound and multifaceted bilateral influences that call for continued historical research. The result is an invaluable research tool for serious scholars and a more general audience interested in German-American relationsoThe I^Handbook will thus be an essential part of any library whose mission is to support research on Germany, U.S. foreign policy, and the Cold War." Daniel E. Rogers, University of South Alabama, H-German (H-Net)
The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War is a multi-author work that looks at all aspects of German-American relations in the years from Germany's defeat in World War II to the fall of the Berlin Wall and Germany's reunification. No other work takes as broad a view of German-American relations. Besides chapters on political and military relations, the work gives extensive coverage of the economic, cultural, and social contacts between the U.S. and the two German states in the four decades leading up to the dramatic events of 1989-90.
