Ludz, (3) "German Government and Politics from the Textbook Author's Viewpoint" by J.H. Herz, (4) "Competition in Miracles?--How to Study the Postwar Development of the German Economies" by H.D. Renning, (5) "The Bundeswehr: A New Phase in Civil-Military Relations in the Federal Republic of Germany" by H.P. Secher, (6) "Education as Change Agent and Change Object in the Two Germanies" by R.F. Lawson, (7) "Teaching Postwar German Culture--An Undisciplined Discipline" by G.H. Weiss, (8) "A Reader on Postwar Germany for American Students--Some Preliminary Thoughts" by W. Koepke, and (9) "GDR Literature--A Literature of Conflict and Dissent" by M. Eifler.
