Despite his Jewish origins, Walter Rathenau became a star of Berlin society, and his political career took him to the head of the AEG, the Ministry for Reconstruction, and, in 1922, the Foreign Ministry. This first English edition of his notes and diaries provides a fascinating insight into the personality and achievements of one of the most influential figures in Wilhemine and Weimar Germany.
