A Berlin Republic brings jointly writings at the new, united Germany by means of one in every of their most unusual and trenchant commentators, Jürgen Habermas. between different themes, he addresses the implications of German historical past, the demanding situations and perils of the post-Wall period, and Germany's position in modern Europe.

Here, as in his past The earlier as Future, Habermas emerges as an encouraged analyst of up to date German political and highbrow lifestyles. He time and again criticizes fresh efforts by way of old and political commentators to 'normalize' and, partly, to understate the horrors of recent German heritage. He insists that 1945 - no longer 1989 - used to be the the most important turning aspect in German background, because it was once then that West Germany decisively repudiated definite facets of its cultural and political prior (nationalism and antisemitism particularly) and grew to become in the direction of Western Traditions of democracy: loose and open dialogue, and recognize for the civil rights of all contributors. equally, Habermas deplores the renewal of nationalist sentiment in Germany and all through Europe. Drawing upon his great ancient wisdom and modern perception, Habermas argues for heightened emphasis on trans-European and international democratic associations - associations much better fitted to meet the demanding situations (and hazards) of the following century.
