The Relationship between U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel


“In these days of deep political polarization and strained relations within and between the United States and Europe, it’s more important than ever to examine successful partnerships. Despite some very stark differences in political style, opinion, and national interests, Chancellor Merkel and President Obama were able to form a friendship that laid the groundwork for a period of strong trans-Atlantic cooperation. Claudia Clark’s thorough research and examination into the relationship between Merkel and Obama is a refreshing look at basic concepts that, in this era of divisiveness, seem quite novel — finding shared values, building trust, and showing mutual respect.”
