The rebirth of Europe by Elizabeth Pond( Book )

35 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 1,077 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
Beyond the wall : Germany's road to unification by Elizabeth Pond( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,067 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
Endgame in the Balkans : regime change, European style by Elizabeth Pond( Book )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 555 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
Friendly fire : the near-death of the transatlantic alliance by Elizabeth Pond( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 430 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
The German question and other German questions by David Schoenbaum( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and German and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... A most significant addition to the literature on its subject."--Roger Morgan, Professor of Political Science, European University Institute, Florence An unconventional overview of a new and normal Germany fifty years after World War 2 and five years after unification. The authors address the challenges of ageing and migration to a tangled national identity; their impact on a cautious yet resilient society, and an inertial yet dynamic economy; and the frequently surprising 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

A new constitution for the old continent? by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper recalls the poor results of the Nice summit as regards institutional reforms, and argues that to escape the malaise after Nice, the German government choose a "flight forward" and leaped well beyond the general opinion of other European elites, by calling for a new European constitution and a federation of nation-states. The analysis describes the reactions of the other European countries to the German initiatives, and examines the reasons why the current floating of constitutional and federal proposals by Germany should be taken seriously.--ECLAS summary
Letter from Bonn : Visions of the European Dream by Elizabeth Pond( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper first recalls the stark difference in stereotypes on the two sides of the Atlantic. It examines the political and psychological explanations for the US sense of European impotence and for the downbeat American reading of European integration. Next, it examines whether these differences in transatlantic perceptions matter, and it argues that the US lack of nuance in looking at Europe is unhealthy in creating skewed expectations and potential misjudgments in the longer term. For this reason, it describes the dynamic and balance of risks, as perceived in Germany: it highlights the development of a new cooperative mindset in Europe, well beyond the limits of the European Union. It also examines the impact of the recent changes on the relationship between France and Germany and the progresses of political and economic reforms in the former communist countries.--SCAD summary
Kosovo : Catalyst for Europe by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part of this paper describes the reasons why, for Europeans, the war in Kosovo was existential and put to the test all the continent's gains of the previous fifty years. The second part of the analysis argues that Kosovo was a catalyst for a new transatlantic bargain and a more autonomous European role in European security, although America's unique credibility in deterrence remains indispensable for preservation of stability in Europe. It also describes the major changes that the Europeans must make in the configuration of their forces, as well as the positions of Germany, France and Britain regarding the future role of NATO and the development of the EU's Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP).--SCAD summary
Germany Finds Its Niche as a Regional Power by Elizabeth Pond( )

3 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 5 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
Germany in the New Europe by Elizabeth Pond( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author assesses Germany's new leading role in Europe and the changes in her relationship with the US. Germany's influence within the EC is outlined and her importance to a European security structure based on NATO and the WEU is stressed. The German contribution to guiding and financing change in Eastern Europe is summarised and finally the public mood and state of the parties is sketched.--SCAD summary
Justice and democracy in the Balkans by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A generation after the Balkan wars of the 1990s, Serbs have struggled to achieve accountability and reconciliation. Belgrade's record may not offer a blueprint for others, but it has not yet failed."--Editor
Letter from Davos, Switzerland : Drawing Lines in Europe by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this article, the author gives details of the 1996 World Economic Forum which took place in Davos, Switzerland. It focused in particular on the post-communist economies and policies of Eastern Europe. The author looks at the situation in the Visegrad countries (Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia), the Ukraine and Russia. She then describes the opinion of political figures from the West as to the possibility of integrating Central Europe into the West via EU expansion and NATO membership. The conclusion is that it is too early to predict what the final outcome will be in drawing an East West line.--SCAD summary
Serbia reinvents itself by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Serbia-Kosovo deal signed in April was an historic breakthrough. The ultranationalists in Belgrade are evolving into pragmatists or are being sidelined."--Editor
Romania : better late than never by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the action of the 1996-2000 centre-right government. It highlights the negative impact of this government, which also failed to deliver radical structural reforms. Next, the analysis addresses whether the new government can do better. It argues that prospects for eventual EU and NATO membership provide incentives and discipline, and that the ultimate test of the new cabinet's competence will be its own longer-term resistance to corruption.--ECLAS summary
Germany and its European Environment by Elizabeth Pond( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of Germany's social and political structure in the aftermath of the cold war. The theme of the paper is that even in the middle of major changes in the political and economic environment, Germany remains a stable, conservative democracy capable of resolving its multiple crises. Germany's western identity is assured and the country's consensus is being rebuilt. The development of the European Community will be the main channel for Germany's energies in the future.--SCAD summary
