Dr. Adenauer-A Failing Ally?

Butz, Otto W.
August 1953
New Republic;8/17/53, Vol. 129 Issue 3, p13
The article focuses on the American policy in Germany which is committed to the support of the person and government of Konrad Adenauer, former German chancellor who led the Germans into a democratic state and the leading spokesman of an integrated Europe. The key to the strength of the present German government has been its claim that it has made Germany acceptable to the United States and thereby has been enabled to give the country a measure of security and prosperity which would otherwise have been impossible. The feeling of dependence on the U.S. among Germans is fast disappearing. And as it does, the importance, in the eyes of the German voter, of the acceptability of his political leaders to American public opinion becomes steadily less.
