Summary
The unification of the two German states in 1990 forms a central moment in German history and leads to a crucial question: Why was the West German Basic Law not replaced by an all-German constitution? Does this reflect a lack of interest on the part of »the« West Germans – as has recently been assumed again? What other reasons can be given? These questions are explored in the contributions to this volume across East and West as well as across generations and disciplines. Linked to this is the question of what stories we tell about our constitution and what can be told from them about German history.
