In The Chancellor, journalist and American Academy trustee Kati Marton set out to pierce the mystery of Angela Merkel’s unlikely ascent. With unparalleled access to Angela Merkel’s inner circle and scores of interviews with her friends, classmates, teachers, and fellow heads of state, Marton’s book reveals the unique political genius that is the secret to Merkel’s success. No other modern leader has so ably confronted authoritarian aggression, enacted daring social policies, and calmly unified an entire continent in an era when countries are resorting to dangerous xenophobia. Her legacy is a socially and politically transformed Germany, which she leaves at the very height of her global stature and popularity.
