A realistic appraisal? a rejoinder to goldberger

Andrei S. Markovits, Simon Reich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In German Politics (Vol.2, No.2, August 1993), Bruce N. Goldberger authored an article entitled ‘Why Europe Should not Fear the Germans'. This title was a play upon the title of an article that we published in German Politics and Society in the summer of 1991, ‘Should Europe Fear the Germans?’ In truth, Goldberger’s contribution should have included the subtitle ‘A Critique of Markovits and Reich’ because our study was the exclusive focus of Goldberger’s analysis which – tellingly – begins with the words ‘Andrei Markovits and Simon Reich ask “Should Europe Fear the Germans?”’ and then repeatedly cites or debates our interpretation throughout his text.
