Abstract:

European affairs continue their rapid evolution in the new post-cold war era. Currently, many of our Western European allies are pressing toward greater economic, political and military integration as they attempt to create a unified Europe. Without any doubt, at the heart of this drive to achieve greater integration is the Franco-German bilateral relationship, upon which the eventual success in achieving a unified Europe is widely recognized as being dependent. The author argues that current difficulties in the relationship, albeit potentially serious, are not terminal. A healthy Paris-Bonn relationship is in U.S. interests, he argues, and provides policy recommendations to U.S. officials to encourage its repair.
