With theMoreAt the end of the Second World War the German Foreign Office (Ausw rtiges Amt) was at the lowest ebb of its 75 year history.

The allieds suspended the Ministrys operations and took over direct responsibility for Germanys foreign policy. With the progressive return of control over foreign affairs to the German government in the 1950s, the Ausw rtiges Amt also began to function once again. Relaunching German Diplomacy: The Ausw rtiges Amt in the 1950s charts the process of building up a ministry whose morale had been shattered by its recent history and which needed to define a new approach for Germany to foreign affairs.

The book looks at how the Ausw rtiges Amt and its diplomats, many of whom had served under the National Socialist regime, came to terms with their own past, and describes the developments in structure and personnel which made it a modern ministry well adapted to the post-war world. The author shows how this politically difficult and organisationally complicated transformation process produced an energetic and successful response from all those involved at the time. For anyone interested in how Germanys foreign policy structures evolved after the war, this book is essential reading, but it also offers the general reader a fascinating insight into the early years of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The book is a comprehensive account for researchers of West German foreign policy in the 1950s, who need to understand the relevant institutional framework, as well as valuable reading for the student of institutional history who is interested in the characteristics of a bureaucracy responsible for managing foreign relations. Claus M. M ller is a German diplomat who has published previously on the history of the German Foreign Ministry.

During his doctoral studies of diplomatic history and international relations at the University of Cambridge, he focussed on the role of diplomats in a changing international environment.
