Gerhard Schröder, in Der Spiegel

Der Spiegel has an interesting section titled A Cheat Sheet to Schröder's Memoirs.

They point out that Gerhard Schröder's stint as chancellor, from 1998 to 2005, marked the coming of age of the New Germany. The country took an increasingly prominent role on the international stage -- be it in the Balkans, the war on terror or Berlin's outspoken opposition to the Iraq war.

Schröder's just-published memoirs provide a unique glimpse into that transformation. SPIEGEL ONLINE provides a cheat sheet.
