Summary
"No American statesman has been as revered and as reviled as Henry Kissinger. Yet as Niall Ferguson shows in this magisterial biography, the idea of Kissinger as the ruthless arch-realist is based on a profound misunderstanding. Drawing not only on Kissinger's hitherto closed private papers but also on documents from more than a hundred archives around the world, Ferguson argues that the true foundation of Kissinger's thought is philosophical idealism. This first of two volumes examines Kissinger's considerable achievements before his appointment as Nixon's national security advisor."--Publisher's website
