This yearbook is a cooperative work by five German spatial research institutes and was newly founded. In the first issue one of the main problems in Germany is presented in 12 essays : the restructuring of Eastern Germany and its approaches and processes, structures and effects. After the political union of both German states the structural equalisation of living conditons was an enormous challenge for the entire German populace and for all the functional systems within this new and larger country. After more than 15 years it has become clear that this challenge has hardly diminished. Seven articles are devoted to a total analysis of spatial structures and processes in Eastern Germany as well as the politics of Ost programme (Economic Reconstruction in the East). Two articles are concerned with the more specific themes of urban developmental policies using examples in Eastern Germany. The articles are supplemented by reports of regional structures and regional planning systems in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe countries as well as an account of an Academy of Regional Sciences and Regional Planning conference about questions concerning the relationship between a knowledge society and spatial development. - (IfL)
