Das Amt des Bundespräsidenten warfare Richard von Weizsäcker gleichsam auf den Leib geschneidert, und auch „außer Dienst“ ist er bis heute eine politische und moralische Instanz geblieben. Wie kaum ein anderer Politiker hat er es verstanden, das Ganze der deutschen Gesellschaft in den Blick zu nehmen, Stärken und Schwächen der bundesdeutschen Demokratie darzulegen und zugleich immer wieder integrierend zu wirken. Gunter Hofmann, langjähriger Chefkorrespondent der Wochenzeitung „Die ZEIT“, geht dem Lebensweg des Ausnahmepolitikers nach, schildert seinen familiären Hintergrund und die wesentlichen Stationen seiner politischen Karriere, aber er fragt auch einfühlsam nach der komplexen Persönlichkeit Weizsäckers, die sich nicht leicht auf eine Formel bringen lässt. So ist ein biographisches Portrait entstanden, das uns den Mann näher bringt, der – gemeinsam mit Helmut Schmidt – inmitten grassierender Politikverdrossenheit für viele Deutsche zum Inbegriff eines glaubwürdigen Staatsmannes geworden ist.
