Stefan  Berkholz - Taking a Risk


‘Realpolitician’, team player, philosopher, provocateur – the fascinating portrait of this rising star of German politics

Since at least 2018, Robert Habeck has been considered one of the most interesting and influential voices in German politics. In March 2019, the ZDF channel's Politbarometer programme named him the country's most popular politician; and in 2020, polls showed that Habeck is one of the likeliest candidates to succeed Angela Merkel following the impending elections.

In this book, the journalist Stefan Berkholz – who has spent much time following and observing Habeck – explains why, and uncovers the background to Habeck's rise. Where does Habeck come from, what has made him who he is? Can the substance and sincerity he embraces actually be transported into the age of the short attention span? Will we tolerate honesty in politics even when it ends up challenging our prosperity? These are just some of the questions answered in this multifaceted book.
