Krewson, Margrit B.
This bibliography was compiled to provide researchers and students with a current guide to sources on the German-speaking countries of Europe: Austria, the Federal Republic of Germany, the German Democratic Republic, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. The following subject areas are included under each country: (1) bibliographies and reference works; (2) description and travel; (3) economy; (4) education; (5) history; (6) intellectual and cultural life; (7) literature; (8) military policy; (9) politics and government; (10) religion; and (11) society. The bibliography emphasizes publications from the 1980s and relies on 1970s publications only when no more recent title on the same subject is available. It also focuses on the broad nature of the material's appeal within its subject area, and its availability to the reading public. All items cited can be found in the collections of the Library of Congress. Preference has been given to English-language sources. Special attention has been given to the interaction between these countries and the United States. The sources selected attempt to highlight the uniqueness of the relationsihp of each country with the United States. A total of 1,485 items are listed, with full bibliographic data. (JB)
