The rebirth of Europe by Elizabeth Pond( )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 2,790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rejuvenation of Europe as a totalitarian century ends and a global century begins is a remarkable story. This book brings together the three dynamics of Europe's position at this extraordinary moment: the European monetary union, the deepening of intra-EU cooperation, and the widening of the EU and NATO to take in central European members. It looks at the broad political and policy implications of the EMU and shows how the United States views this integration
Friendly fire : the near-death of the transatlantic alliance by Elizabeth Pond( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relations between the United States and Europe have declined in recent years, and today they are worse than at any time since the 1950s. In Friendly Fire, Elizabeth Pond examines the widening gulf and worsening acrimony between the United States and its traditional allies on the European continent." "Elizabeth Pond examines a number of disputes that led to the near death of the transatlantic alliance in the last year - chronic trade quarrels, the International Criminal Court, the Kyoto Protocol, Israeli-Palestinian violence, the proper role of the United Nations and international law - and identifies the ways in which they reinforce and exacerbate one another. In addition, Pond examines the German-American-French strains over the impending Iraq war as well as its aftermath."--Jacket
Endgame in the Balkans : regime change, European style by Elizabeth Pond( )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Veteran journalist Pond asks, Can Europe tame the Balkans? She first describes the 1990s Yugoslav wars and the region's yearning to join the European Union. Exploring the premise that the Balkans should be treated as an integral part of today's Europe, she describes how the lure of EU membership is shaping the Balkans--and how Balkan developments are reshaping the EU. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and decades of experience as a foreign correspondent, Pond describes the political, economic, and ethnic challenges as each Balkan land seeks to vault from the 19th to the 21st century. Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, and Montenegro must all carry out painful reforms to qualify for EU membership by establishing democratic institutions, rule of law, and general tolerance. Pond examines the tension between these demands and traditional mindsets engendered by years of poverty, corruption, and chauvinism.--From publisher description
Beyond the wall : Germany's road to unification by Elizabeth Pond( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond the Wall is the first book, in either English or German, to tell the whole story of the extraordinary revolution that demolished the Berlin Wall, ended the cold war, and tore apart the Soviet empire. Elizabeth Pond, former Moscow and European correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, was an eyewitness to the dramatic events of 1989-92 and to the fifteen years of relations between Germany and Eastern Europe leading up to them. Pond weaves together in riveting prose the strands of events that are usually recounted separately. Rather than looking just at the East German revolt or the process of unification that created a new nation, she traces the interaction of these events and their diplomatic consequences for Europe. Pond shows the political, economic, and social forces at work - leading up to the unification, during the transition process, and in the aftermath. Looking at the European framework, she explains how significantly the European Community and its move toward integration both affected and were affected by German unification. The book contains a wealth of new information from hundreds of interviews with top German and American policymakers, East German Politburo members, and average German citizens. It also incorporates up-to-date research on such topics as the Stasi secret police and the midlife crisis of the German left. Pond concludes with an assessment of the roles of the United States and a united Germany in the new Europe. Calling for a continued partnership between the United States and Germany, who "have come through a common baptism of fire since the fall of the Berlin Wall," Pond casts an optimistic eye toward the future
The German question and other German questions by David Schoenbaum( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German Question and Other German Questions is an unconventional overview of a new and normal Germany, fifty years after the Second World War and five years after unification, by an American historian and an American journalist with over fifty years of professional German-watching between them. Among other "German Questions", they address the interactions of ageing, immigration and unification on a tangled national identity, and their impact on a cautious yet resilient society and an inertial yet dynamic economy. They then consider the frequently surprising and even exemplary ways Germans have learned to cope with one another, redefine and pursue their interests, and deal with a changing world after two dictatorships, two world wars and one cold war

Germany finds its niche as a regional power by Elizabeth Pond( )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper recalls the challenge that faced Germany after the abrupt disappearance of the bipolar world and the reunification. It shows that a strong case can be made that united Germany, despite all the turbulence, has actually adjusted quite well to the post-cold war world, and that Germany is finding its niche as a medium power that is gradually making its political clout commensurate with its economic clout. A particular attention is paid to the evolution of the relationship with Russia and to the German policy towards European integration.--SCAD summary
