    Overview

    Summary
    "This deeply informed biography of Walther Rathenau (1867?1922) tells of a man who?both thoroughly German and unabashedly Jewish?rose to leadership in the German War-Ministry Department during the First World War, and later to the exalted position of foreign minister in the early days of the Weimar Republic. His achievement was unprecedented?no Jew in Germany had ever attained such high political rank. But Rathenau?s success was marked by tragedy: within months he was assassinated by right-wing extremists seeking to destroy the newly formed Republic" --Dust jacket flap.
