This book combines new thinking in International Relations theory and Foreign Policy Analysis withoriginal historical research concerning West German party politics in the 1950s and 1960s and thestruggle between the Christian Democrats and Social Democrats on the issue of howreunification should be approached, from Adenauer's policy of Westbindung to Brandt'sOstpolitik. It contributes to theory formation on international politics and foreign policy by usingthe Federal Republic as a crucial case study on 'strategic states' in international politics and at thesame time adds to the historiography of the German question and West German reunification policy.
