In a textbook for undergraduate students of comparative politics, Conradt (East Carolina U.) introduces the modern German state. He emphasizes the institutional character of the postwar system and the multiplicity of policy changes and conflicts that are now taking place within the Republic. The latest edition takes more notice of international, and especially European, factors as determinants in German politics and policies. No dates are noted for earlier editions except 1978 for the first. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
