The recommendations that follow are the product of a series of meetings of a group of German and American scholars. The deliberations at no time consisted of scholars of only one nationality. Among the scholars were American experts on German history as well as German experts on American history. What follows should, therefore, be regarded as an attempt to identify the most important events and developments in the two countries, both domestic and international. The recommendations claim neither completeness nor any deliberate exclusion of material. They are not intended to provide specific points of emphasis. Their aim is to stimulate a discussion of one or another aspect of German or U.S. postwar history or to place it in a broader context of historical perspective.
