The subject of this book is the relationship between unequal partners in the international system. The chapters focus on two relationships between unequal partners - Austria and the Federal Republic of Germany on the one hand, and Canada and the United States on the other. By including not only the political and economic, but also the historical, cultural and communications aspect of the relationship, the authors broaden the scope of their analyses.
