9780715651827: Angela Merkel: Europe's Most Influential Leader

The most up-to-date, illuminating, and in-depth biography of Angela Merkel and how she rose to become Europe’s most important political figure

Angela Merkel, the woman who has held control of the European Union and successfully negotiated with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is one of the most crucial and formidable fixtures in contemporary politics. Political commentator and journalist Matthew Qvortrup weaves the personal story of the German chancellor with the vivid history of post- World War II in Angela Merkel, the riveting account of the political titan’s ascent from obscurity to become one of the most influential leaders in the world, responsible for making Germany more liberal and prosperous than it has ever been.

Updated from the hardcover, this definitive biography follows Angela Merkel from her bleak childhood in East Germany through her meteoric rise to power, and includes up-to-date information on recent pressing concerns, such as the current refugee crisis. Offering an unprecedented look at how Merkel’s inimitable personality and perspective allowed her and her staff of mostly female advisors to repeatedly outmaneuver a network of conservative male politicians, Angela Merkel is essential reading for anyone interested in politics and current affairs, or simply in the story of a truly remarkable woman.

About the Author:

Matthew Qvortrup is currently professor of political science at Coventry University’s Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations. Previously, he was academic director in the Department of Security and Management at Cranfield University. He was educated at Oxford and the University of Copenhagen and has written for Bloomberg Businessweek, The Sun, The Scotsman, and The Times. He also appears as a regular commentator for the BBC, on both radio and television.

Review:

“Angela Merkel has been Chancellor of Germany for the past 11 years; arguably, she remains the most powerful political leader in Europe. Yet most Americans are unfamiliar with her personal or political life, so this first English-language biography can help alleviate that shortcoming. A well-written and informative tribute to an extraordinary political leader.”
- Booklist

“Qvortrup’s writing comes alive when recounting political machinations...The reader leaves the book with plenty of facts about Merkel’s life and possessing a better understanding of recent German politics.”
- Publishers Weekly

“In Angela Merkel, Matthew Qvortrup masterfully weaves together the key episodes of this turbulent life and most unlikely political career, and provides compelling evidence that there is no better way toward a deeper understanding of the present than revisiting the past.”
- Professor Ludger Helms, University of Innsbruck; author of Presidents, Prime Ministers and Chancellors

“In a world full of disappointing national leaders, Matt Qvortrup provides us with an insightful, revealing, vivid reading of a leading woman who tops them all.”
- Amitai Etzioni, author of The Active Society

“Written in a lively and engaging style, Angela Merkel is a joy to read. It is an extraordinary and incisive book, which gives us a unique insight into the life and times of the woman who almost single-handedly transformed the politics of her country and of the world.”
- Arend Lijphart, Research Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of California, San Diego

“Impressively researched, exceptionally detailed, extraordinarily well-written, organized and presented, Angela Merkel: Europe's Most Influential Leader is a consistently compelling read from beginning to end.”
- Midwest Book Review

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Expanded and updated edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The illuminating and in-depth biography of Angela Merkel, using exclusive new sources and research to tell how the daughter of a clergyman from East Germany rose to become arguably the most powerful politician in Europe. Angela Merkel is an extraordinary woman: born a pastor s daughter, she earned a doctorate in Quantum Chemistry and, despite having no political experience, succeeded in becoming the first female German Chancellor. She has transformed German and European politics; her achievements at home and abroad have seen her top the Forbes Most Powerful Women list ten times; and she is still going strong after more than a decade in office. Her trajectory is fascinating and impressive, but how has she done it? What drives her? Understanding Merkel is essential for anyone with an eye on in current affairs, especially with Brexit on the horizon. This is the life story of a truly remarkable personality, based on more than a decade s worth of study and original archival research. It explores the cultural, historical and political influences that shaped Merkel s character, and combines the narrative of her life with a lively account of the history of Germany from 1945 to the present day.
