MEDIA REVIEWS
Who ever has written a better book on Willy Brandt for an American audience than Viola Herms Drath? -- Norman Mailer, Pulitzer Prize winning author
Only history will tell whether Ostpolitik facilitated or impeded the collapse of Soviet Communism. -- Dr. John McLaughlin, Host, The McLaughlin Group
A compelling book about the tragic rise and fall of a complex statesman, the visions, and vulnerabilities of Germany's first Social Democratic Chancellor and father of Ostpolitik. -- George Radanovic, U.S. Congressman
Drath has written an important, immensely useful book. -- Frank Getlein, The Washington Star
It's good news that Viola Herms Drath's book on Willy Brandt is being reissued. The life and achievements-and painful failures-of this remarkable man deserve to be better known in the english-speaking world. -- Michael Frayn, Playwright, Author of Democracy
Drath's book remains a must-read for those interested in fully appreciating an important statesman, both in his own time and beyond. -- Hon. Henry A. Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State
Among the world's leaders of his time, Willy Brandt stands out because of his vision. Today, his Ostpolitik is not given sufficient credit for the major contribution to the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the rejection of Soviet Communism. -- Lord Owen, former UK Foreign Secretary
For forty years, Berlin symbolized the division of Germany and the partition of Europe, which Brandt's vision for reconciliation and cooperation helped overcome. -- Hon. Klaus Wowereit, Governing Mayor of Berlin
