PASSPORT GERMANY: AUTHORS/CONTRIBUTORS
Roland Flamini has been writing about Germany and German affairs for nearly two decades. He was bureau chief of Time Magazine in Bonn from 1980-1984, when the planned deployment of American medium-range missiles in West Germany bitterly divided the nation (and contributed to the political defeat of Helmut Schmidt and Social Democrats and the emergence of Chancellor Helmut Kohl).
He covered the first German election following reunification, accompanying both Kohl and Willy Brandt on the campaign trail in East Germany. In 1992, he became a member of the Washington D.C.-based Atlantic Council’s two-year study of the country’s post-reunification.
Flamini is the author of several books, including Sovereign: Elizabeth II and the Windsor Dynasty (Dell/Bantam, U.K., 1990) and Thalberg: the Last Tycoon and the World of M.G.M. (Crown, 1994). He is currently working on a biography of the military theorist Karl von Clausewitz.
