Summary:
This study argues that 'strategic culture' provides only a partial explanation of of German military reform after the Cold War era. It demonstrates how domestic material factors were of crucial importance in shaping the pace and outcome of reform, despite the impact of 'international structure' and pressure from the EU and NATO.
