Drath, a West German journalist, studies the man-with all his past experiences and sexual energies. She provides interesting material that some day might enrich a balanced biography. Binder, a New York Times correspondent, writes a more conventional and far more informative and gripping account of the life and work of one of Germany's most remarkable modern statesmen.
