Anatomie einer konservativen Partei 1945 -1972" erschienen ist. Diese "Geschichte der CSU" ist auch nicht die 1975 angekiindigte Folgestudie, sondern eine Dberblicksdarstellung, die einen eigenen Platz neben den breit angelegten Fachbiichern beansprucht. Wenn auch aus Platzgriinden hier auf eine ausfiihrliche Diskussion der wis senschaftlichen Literatur zur CSU bzw. zu Gegenstandsbereichen, die auch die CSU betreffen, verzichtet und der Anmerkungsapparat auf das Allerwichtigste beschrankt werden mugte, so handelt es sich hier doch urn den ersten Versuch einer fachwissenschaftlichen Ge samtdarstellung. In dieser "Geschichte der CSU" werden iiber kurzgefagte Teile meines ersten Buches hinaus ideologische Grundziige und Hauptent wicklungslinien der Politik der CSU dargestellt und an Beispielen landes- und bundespolitischer Situationen verdeutlicht. Hierbei wird auch ins element gegangen und ofters ausfiihrlich zitiert, vor allem aus dokumentarischen Grunden. Denn meine Argumentation und meine Interpretation stiitzen sich auf "Hintergrundwissen" und auf viele, dem Leser unzugangliche Quellen.
