The volume focuses on the German issues that primarily engaged high-level U.S. policymakers: 1) U.S. efforts to retain a privileged relationship with the Federal Republic of Germany's leadership; 2) the attempts of U.S. policymakers to provide carefully measured support for West German initiatives aimed at achieving national reunification, including its emerging Ostpolitik; 3) U.S. efforts to secure a larger offset payment by the Federal Republic of Germany to cover the costs of maintaining U.S. forces in Europe; 4) the desire of the United States to secure West German support for a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty; 5) U.S.-French differences over policy toward Germany; and 6) the development of policy toward the Berlin question.
