Abstract:

The First Chapter will discuss the Soviet policy towards German reunification from the Teheran summit until Stalins death. The second chapter will analyze Soviet policy towards the German Question after Stalins death until the building of the Berlin Wall. In these two chapters, this thesis will attempt to answer the following questions Did the Soviets ever seriously consider a neutral reunified Germany to preclude a strong West Germany aligned with the West Were the Soviets willing to give up the Sovietized Eastern Zone to prevent First the Formation of the FRG and subsequently the rearmament and integration of the FRG into the Western alliance If not, were the many Soviet proposals simply attempts to prevent or delay West German rearmament and alignment with the West Did the Soviets actually want a reunified Communist Germany. The third will deal with the Future prospects of German reunification. The writer will attempt to predict future Soviet policy toward German reunification by look at the Soviet-East Germany relationship and recent Soviet actions and comments toward the inter-German relationship this chapter will also discuss several neutralist plans for the reunification vis-arvis the Soviets. Finally the author will offer a possible model for reunification the Soviets might consider. Author
