Abstract : This study investigates the emergence of a unified Germany within the context of European integration and the security effect it has on an increasingly interdependent world order. These issues are very fluid, yet their nature will be critical to United States' interests. Central to this thesis is the assertion that whatever course European politics take Germany will be the pivotal nation. Its wealth, technology, and geopolitical position provide Germany enormous power. This study establishes that German unification is complete and will last for the near future. In America there is a hope that a unified Europe will provide increased business opportunities. The European Community may become a restrictive trading bloc. Security relationships will be redefined based on the perceived interests, which will be increasingly affected by economic interests. The roles of NATO, the WEU, and the CSCE are not clear.
