About this book

This work is an analysis of the Common Agricultural Policy and Germany's role within it. The authors investigate the effect of reunification on German policy in 2000 and ask whether she has acted as leader, partner or obstructor in the formation of policy. Their analysis includes social and environmental aspects, as well as the economic and political, with a special focus on the "green agenda" in European agriculture.
