About this book

Reviews

''Ulrich Krotz's History and Foreign Policy convincingly theorizes William Faulkner's fundamental insight about history 'The past is never dead. It's not even past.' By establishing the centrality of history as a causal variable in the formation of French and German foreign policy, he makes a signal and singular contribution to the study of comparative foreign policy.'' James C. Sperling, Professor of Political Science, University of Akron, USA

''A timely, and yet timeless, approach to understanding the foreign policy orientations of France and Germany grounded in their national role conceptions, as well as the resulting broader implications for EU foreign and security policy and world order.'' Cameron G. Thies, Professor and Director, School of Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University, USA
