Die Finanzierung der Bundeshauptstadt Bonn
The self-image of the Federal Republic of Germany was always reflected in the treatment of its capital, Bonn. To start with, Bonn's architecture remained as visibly provisional as the Federal Republic was intended to be. Later, as the power blocs became more firmly entrenched, Bonn was provided first with more representative government buildings, and then later with museums and other insignia of capital status. The municipal coffers received more and more support. At the same time, West Berlin increasingly lost its role as an outpost of the Free West. This book examines the period from 1949 to 1999, the half-century in which the government and the Federal Parliament were located in Bonn. It makes a contribution to the history of the Federal Republic, of the city of Bonn, and of the financing of the capital city.
