4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 19 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Angela Merkel: A Chancellorship Forged in Crisis (Bloomberg (UK)) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having worked in the past as an economist for the EU Council of the Regions and as a University Lecturer in Political Science and EU Law I try and read as much as I can about the people behind the issues. I usually adore political biographies/autobiographies, which is what I thought this book would be. In reality it is not such a book. This is a more superficial analysis of Merkel from the perspective of the Euro crisis and her response to it. I say it is superficial from the fact that so much of the analysis is based upon Merkel's speeches, rather than more in depth primary source analysis.

This is an interesting account of what, how and why Germany has done what it has done in terms of Euro crisis but it is not an in-depth analysis of Merkel from a personal level and the political analysis lacks depth in certain areas.

This is not a bad book, but it is not what I expected nor wanted, which was a autobiography on Merkel.
