Helmut Kohl – Taking stock of an era
Helmut Kohl – for some he will continue to be the chancellor of German unity; for others he is an egocentric and power-hungry politician whose name is associated with the biggest party funding scandal in Germany and who brought great harm not only upon his own party but upon his family as well.
The well-known contemporary historian and biographer Hans-Peter Schwarz, using substantial and unpublished source material, has now written the first comprehensive political biography of Helmut Kohl.
He has succeeded in creating an important panorama of the life and times of that man who left his mark on political upheavals at the end of the 20th century as few others. Together with statesmen such as Mikhail Gorbachev, George Bush Sr. or Deng Xiaoping, Helmut Kohl made history. At the same time, however, his name is associated with several affairs and domestic political errors.
