Gregor  Schöllgen - Gerhard Schröder


The first important and comprehensive biography on the former Chancellor

Gerhard Schröder polarises. No matter whether it is while stirring up the Young Socialists in the SPD as their chairman, as a young Bundestag delegate getting his opponents' adrenalin flowing, defending misfits as a lawyer or as Minister President developing the art of going it alone to perfection – the forward-charging climber from the fringes of society has always been a provocation.

As the German Chancellor and leader of the SPD he refused to follow the USA into a war with Iraq; and also as an energetic business consultant and Putin friend, Schröder meets criticism head-on. The "frequently successful biographer Gregor Schöllgen" (FAZ) had unprecedentedly free access to Schröder's entire archive and spoke with many of his friends, relatives and opponents, who expressed themselves unusually openly. Thus Schöllgen has set new standards with this first important biography of an exceptional political figure.

•Based on conversations with many companions from all political camps

•Gregor Schöllgen is one of the most eminent historians and biographers in Germany

"Gerhard Schröder’s life, respectfully presented by Gregor Schöllgen … With great feeling, Gregor Schöllgen puts readers of this imposing biography back in time."
