The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War, 1945-1990: Volume 1, 1945-1968 : A Handbook
These volumes were originally published in 2004. The close association between the United States and the Federal Republic of Germany was a key element in the international order of the Cold War era. No country had as wide-reaching or as profound an impact on the western portion of divided Germany as the United States. No country better exemplified the East-West conflict in American thinking than Germany. The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War examines all facets of German-American relations and interaction in the decades from the defeat of the Third Reich to Germany's reunification in 1990. In addition to its comprehensive treatment of US-West German political, economic, social, and cultural ties, The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War provides an overview of the more limited dealings between the US and the communist German Democratic Republic.

"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."
