2: Foreign Policy and Rearmament
Introduced by RICHARD Hiscocks
Professor of International Relations. University of Sussex
Since 1949 West Germany has been restored to a place in the Western Alliance and the international community, but within the .Federal Republic there has been conflict between those who admire President de Gaulle's conception of Europe and those who favour close links with America. A guide line of the Federal Republic's foreign policy has been the Hallstein Doctrine-a refusal to have diplomatic relations with any country that recognises East Germany. Now an agreement with Rumania suggests that the direction of West German foreign policy is changing. At the same time the whole subject of foreign policy has been complicated by the question of German rearmament.

4: Dreams and Goals
Harvesting plankton from the sea is condemned for ever to be a biological dream. If you do the sums this sea soup is just too weak to make it worth concentrating without huge quantities of extra energy. There are other perhaps more likely goals: to prevent illness rather than cure it, or a high technology of agriculture that frees land for leisure. What goals can we move towards with the help of the technology that we need so much?
