About the Book

macron book
The world is changing fast, and politics are evolving with them. Throughout history, times of change have been marked by great leaders shifting the world for the better. Our world today is in crisis. There is a rising need for a new generation of politicians to transform the world, and they seem to appear with a unique style for thinking and behaving. Emmanuel Macron, President of France, could very well be a prototype for a new wave of politicians.

In Macron Unveiled, Alain Lefebvre examines Macron’s first four years as France’s President and analyzes his personality, approach to solving problems, sources of inspiration, mistakes, difficulties, and the impact he has made in France, Europe, and worldwide. Macron Unveiled explains the French political perspective to international audiences, bringing careful analysis and historical context to Macron’s time in office. Lefebvre presents the information in a way that allows readers to gain a better understanding of who Macron is as a man, a leader, and a prototype for the next generation of politicians.
