During the period from 1949 to 1990 some political analysts argued that West Germany had transformed German foreign policy traditions from a Bismarckian Machtpolitik (power policy) to a Machtvergesenheit (forgetting and neglecting of power policy). Hans-Peter Schwarz, a noted political historian, argued that the West Germans had over time accepted a "responsible and moral" and sometimes "simplistic" approach to foreign and security policy issues. This thesis examines the factors of continuity and change regarding Schwarz's claim of German Machvergessenheit, both before and after Germany's reunification in 1990.
