Petra  Morsbach - The Elephant in the Room


"Petra Morsbach's book is a strong appeal for critique and correction. These are the oxygen of the rule of law."


"Petra Morsbach has written an entertaining book about power, and what happens when the abuse of power is exposed."

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"Petra Morsbach's book on the abuse of power and resistance to it is a powerful contribution to civics in the best sense."

Deutschlandfunk "Büchermarkt"

"The author passionately and convincingly reminds us that law and truth always have better reasons on their side than do power-based self-righteousness."

Deutschlandfunk "Büchermarkt"

"A non-fiction book that reads like a thriller, though one certainly based on reality."

Passauer Neue Presse
