Berlin Wall

Without wishing to blow my own trumpet too much 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, but I wrote this in 1987:

‘Already signs of change are visible in the Soviet Bloc which could well have serious consequences for European politics in a period when western economies appear to be entering a period of economic downturn… The national question in Germany will in future become a much more important political issue and its solution will increasingly be seen as a way to solve some of the internal social and economic problems in both German states and the rest of Europe.’
