Former German Chancellor Dr.Angela Merkel's political memoirs to be published in 2024

Former German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel ruled Germany for 16 years from 2005 to 2021. And now, reflecting upon her career, Dr Merkel's political memoir is all set to be published by Pan Macmillan.

Dr Merkel's memoir is co-authored by her long-time political advisor Beate Baumann and it is expected to be published in 2024. The book will give rare insights into the political life and works of Dr.Angela Merkel, Germany's former Chancellor.

Commenting on the development, Dr. Merkel said, "I am pleased to reflect on central decisions and situations of my political work in my book, written together with Beate Baumann, and to make them understandable to a broad public, also with recourse to my personal history."

'Pan Macmillan secured U.K. and Commonwealth rights to Angela Merkel's political memoirs as part of a Holtzbrinck Publishing Group global publishing deal led by Kiepenheuer & Witsch. The book will be published in Germany by Kiepenheuer & Witsch and simultaneously in the U.K. by Pan Macmillan on its Macmillan imprint, and in the U.S. by Macmillan under its St. Martin’s Press imprint, as well as in many other countries around the world,' read a statement by the publisher.

Meanwhile, Joanna Prior, CEO of Pan Macmillan said in the statement, “Serving as German Chancellor for 16 years and attending roughly 100 EU summits, Angela Merkel became the most powerful woman in the world. Pan Macmillan is hugely proud to have acquired her political memoirs alongside our international colleagues around the world; publication will mark a significant moment in European and international history.”

The title of Merkel's upcoming memoirs is yet to be revealed. The books are expected to be released in the autumn of 2024.
