Antisemitism and Xenophobia in Germany after Unification

By Hermann Kurthen; Werner Bergmann et al. | Go to book overview
1. A very general question about German foreign policy: How important will it be for us in the future to work closely with America, that is, the U.S.A.? [Very important or important] (.75/.73)
2. Different countries have different forms of government and follow their own political paths. If you think about the countries on this list, which of them are admirable countries for you? For which of these countries do you especially like the political life? (.75/.73) [Factor (Eigenvalue = 2.65/1.41) including: U.S.A. (.75/.74), England (.74/.73), France (.72/.54)]
Evaluation of the general situation now as against the past is a factor meant to evaluate the respondent's impression of improvement or deterioration since unification. It is based on questions asking for a rating from 0 to 10 of the general situation in the respondent's part of the country. The rating for the past is subtracted from the rating for the present.
1. If you think back to the time when Germany was still divided, what do you generally think of the situation at that time? Tell me according to this ladder: 0 would mean that the situation in our part of Germany was very bad, and 10 would mean that the situation here was very good. Which number best expresses what the situation here was like back then? What is the situation like at the present time? Which number best expresses the present situation in our part of Germany? [Present rating minus past rating]
Outlook for future situation is based on the same series of questions as in the previous item, but with respect to the future. 7
1. 1. If you look into the future, how will our part the country develop; how good or bad will the situation here be? Tell me again according to this ladder. [0-10 ladder]

1. A question about next year. Do you look forward to 1993 with hopes or fears?

NOTES

The research for this study was conducted with the support of a grant from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (awarded to Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann and the author) and a grant from the National Science Foundation (grant number SES-9023331) and a fellowship from the German Marshall Fund of the United States (both awarded to the author). I would like to thank Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann, director of the Institut für Demoskopie Allensbach; Max Kaase and Franz Urban Pappi of the University of Mannheim; and Mary Gautier of Louisiana State University for their collaboration, help, and support.

1.
The rest of this section summarizes ongoing collaborative research by the author and Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann. This research is based on special surveys on democratic values and monthly omnibus surveys conducted by Allensbach in East and West Germany since March 1990 (and in West Germany since the late 1940s). For studies of similar themes based on different data see, for example, Feist ( 1991), Gabriel ( 1993), Gibowski and Jung ( 1993), Klingemann and Hofferbert ( 1994), Kuechler ( 1992, 1994), Minkenberg ( 1993), and Veen ( 1993).
