As we look to the German federal elections in 2013, AGI’s newest publication considers three decades of a changing political landscape with the emergence of the Green Party. Andrei Markovits and Joseph Klaver examine the central issues within the party, and within German politics. The authors discuss how the Green Party built its “brand” and, in so doing, ushered in a fundamental change in German politics and society. It is a useful example of the way in which new political parties enter the scene and impact the agenda in Germany.
