I am writing this paper on Germany and America, but not finding too much about Germany at all. I found someones posting on here with the same question, and checked out the websites offered, but they don't really give the kind of info I am needing...Help! This thing is due in a couple days and I am stressing out...any help given would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
Please ask your instructor to guide you with this complex project.
I looked over the website you provided, and it gives some of what I am looking for, but still not all. My instructor has not provided me anything else to go on so Im kind of on my own here. Thank you for the website link though. Any other help would greatly be appreciated.posted by Shawn
