Presidential leadership is examined in the context of German unification. Particular attention is given to the construction of the French negotiating team and the domestic bureaucratic politics of EMU, especially involving Dumas, Guigou, Bérégovoy, and Trichet. Bérégovoy's idea of a third route to EMU is also considered. The key focus is on how French negotiators pursued their objectives, especially the idea of irreversibility.

Keywords:   Pierre Bérégovoy, Roland Dumas, bureaucratic politics, German unification, Elisabeth Guigou, irreversibility, leadership, François Mitterrand, Jean‐Claude Trichet
