About the Book

The Chancellor: The Remarkable Odyssey of Angela Merkel

In the coming months, Germany will have a new chancellor for the first time in 16 years. Following the country’s recent elections, Angela Merkel, one of the world’s longest serving democratically elected leaders, will step down. As she leaves behind a legacy of decisive action and an unrelenting moral compass, Merkel’s retirement comes at a time when there is a great deal of uncertainty in the world, which stands in stark contrast to the guiding pillar of stability she has been for her countrymen over the past two decades.

In The Chancellor, biographer Kati Marton takes an in-depth look into Merkel’s success as a leader, uncovering the secrets of her political and diplomatic success, as well as the unique personal background that helped shape her into the strong, yet humble, leader she is known for being today.

Kati Marton is an author and award-winning former correspondent for NPR and ABC News. She became a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist following her book, Enemies of the People: My Family’s Journey to America. Marton has also written books on other topics of international affairs, such as True Believer: Stalin’s American Spy, The Great Escape: Nine Jews Who Fled Hitler and Changed the World; The Polk Conspiracy, and A Death in Jerusalem. She holds a B.A. and an M.A. from George Washington University.
