Download Willy Brandt: Die Biographie (German Edition) by Gregor Schöllgen PDF

By Gregor Schöllgen

Willy Brandt hat es weit gebracht: Vom unehelichen Sohn aus dem Lübecker Arbeitermilieu bis zum Vorsitzenden der SPD und Chef der Sozialistischen Internationale, vom NS-Verfolgten und Ausgebürgerten zum Bundeskanzler und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Er warfare Liebhaber und Genussmensch, dreifacher Ehemann und vierfacher Vater, rastlos Reisender und Autor zahlloser Artikel und Bücher, ein Mann mit vielen Freundschaften, aber ohne Freunde, gesellig, aber einsam – ein Mensch voller Widersprüche. Dieser epochalen Biographie gelingt es, das vielschichtige Wesen des Mannes zu entschlüsseln und ihn uns nicht nur als Politiker, sondern vor allem als Mensch auf neue Weise nahe zu bringen.
Der Historiker Gregor Schöllgen ist eine Koryphäe der Brandt-Forschung: Als Mitherausgeber des Nachlasses besaß er auch Zugang zu dessen privaten Papieren, die von ihm mitbetreute »Berliner Ausgabe« (2000–2009) der Schriften Willy Brandts gilt als Meilenstein. Kein Biograph hat so viele bedeutende Weggefährten, Angehörige, Freunde und Antagonisten des großen Politikers persönlich befragt, darunter Egon Bahr, Rut Brandt, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, Helmut Kohl, Johannes Rau, Walter Scheel, Helmut Schmidt, Gerhard Schröder und Richard von Weizsäcker.
