“Vertical thinking follows the most likely paths; lateral thinking explores the least likely. […]
With lateral thinking, one uses information, not for its own sake but provocatively
in order to bring about repatterning.”

The articles in this issue of German Politics and Society range in topic from the role of ideational factors in shaping German public discourse on the refugee crisis to the Pegida movement. The tropes of romance and family in performances at the Eurovision Song Contest and in recent European films are examined and the contemporary agency of labor relations actors is analyzed. This issue concludes with book reviews.
Germany was not only the birthplace of Marx and Engels 200 years ago, but also the origin of strong working-class movements. While German socialists became dominant in the 2nd International before 1914, the year 1919 saw the split between Communism and Social Democracy—a political line that divided the country between 1949-1989, when West Germany considered itself a “social market economy” while East Germany built up a soviet-style planned economy.
