Synopsis

When asked to name his most significant accomplishment, West Germany's first Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer would invariably reply, "The alliance with the free West." For years, scholars have agreed, citing the Federal Republic of Germany's successful integration into the American-led West as the key to its postwar economic and political recovery. However, behind this success story, lies a deeper, more complex history. A distinctly German statesman, Adenauer emerges from the new research in this book as a skilled and resourceful politician, maneuvering between allies and adversaries to shape both the Western community and the German role in it, leaving a legacy that still influences contemporary German-American and European-American relations.
