Stephen Szabo, the executive director of the Transatlantic Academy at the German Marshall Fund, is the author of a new book entitled "Germany, Russia, and the Rise of Geo-Economics." Having emerged from the end of the Cold War as a unified country, Germany has quickly become one of the most interconnected countries in the world and the paradigm for an economic power in a market-driven world. Will this type of power replace the older military-based power of the past century or will its vulnerabilities prove too great? In his new book "Germany, Russia, and the Rise of Geo-Economics," Stephen F. Szabo expertly articulates and analyzes German policy toward Russia. He reveals how Germany is finding its global role in which its interests do not always coincide with the United States or its European partners.
