Shortlisted for International Affairs Book of the Yearin the Paddy Power Political Book Awards 2014 Angela Merkel was already unique when she became German chancellor:the first female leader of Europe's biggest economy, thefirst from former communist East Germany and the first born afterWorld War II. Since 2010, the debt crisis that spread from Greeceto the euro region and the world economy has propelled her tocenter-stage, making Merkel the dominant politician in the struggleto preserve Europe's economic model and its single currency.Yet the Protestant pastor's daughter is often viewed asenigmatic and hard-to-predict, a misreading that took hold as sheresisted global pressure for grand gestures to counter the crisis.Having turned the fall of the Berlin Wall to her advantage, Merkelis trying to get history on her side again after reaching thefundamental decision to save the euro, the crowning achievement ofpost-war European unity. Merkel has brought Europe to a crossroads.Germany's economic might gives her unprecedented power to setthe direction for the European Union's 500 million people.What's at stake is whether she will persuade them to followthe German lead. Angela Merkel: A Chancellorship Forged in Crisis is thedefinitive new biography of the world's most powerful woman.Delving into Merkel's past, the authors explain the motivesbehind her drive to remake Europe for the age of globalization, hereconomic role models and the experiences under communism that colorher decisions. For the first time in English, Merkel is fullyplaced in her European context. Through exclusive interviews withleading policy makers and Merkel confidants, the book reveals thebehind-the-scenes drama of the crisis that came to dominate herchancellorship, her prickly relationship with the U.S. andadmiration for Eastern Europe. Written by two long-standing Merkelwatchers, the book documents how her decisions and vision -both works in progress - are shaping a pivotal moment inEuropean history.
Alan Crawford joined Bloomberg News as German government editor in January 2006, six weeks after Merkel was sworn in, and steered coverage of her first and second terms as her global importance grew. He lived in Warsaw and Prague after the fall of the Berlin Wall and has reported from across Europe. He previously worked on the Scotsman and the Sunday Herald in Glasgow and in Edinburgh as Highland, political and special correspondent. Tony Czuczka is an American foreign correspondent who joined Bloomberg News in 2009 as the political correspondent covering Chancellor Merkel, her re-election and the eruption of the European debt crisis. For the past four years, he has had access to Merkel granted to only a handful of foreign reporters, from invitation-only gatherings where she displays rare flashes of humor to major global conferences that expose the strains of leadership. He previously worked for The Associated Press in Europe and the U.S.
'...a crisp new account... The Bloomberg correspondents' book is as much about the course of the eurozone crisis as it is about the German chancellor.' (Financial Times, June 2013) 'In their book Bloomberg News journalists Alan Crawford and Tony Czuczka track Merkel's cautious course, often criticized as faltering and hesitant, through the uncharted waters of Europe's subprime, economic and sovereign debt crisis.' (Bloomberg, June 2013) 'The two authors tell the euro story well, but their most interesting material is about her past. Such details, which include her upbringing in communist East Germany, her position as a woman in a man's world and her background as a research chemist, help to define her domestic politics and her approach to the euro.' (The Economist, July 2013) '...an insightful political biography.' (The Financialist, July 2013) 'For David Cameron, the significant political relationship in Europe is with Germany's chancellor, Angela Merkel. What makes her tick should be of crucial importance and an insight can be found in Alan Crawford and Tony Czuczka's Angela Merkel: A Chancellorship Forged in Crisis' (Total Politics, August 2013)
