    schema:description "Along the way, Hanhimaki sheds light on Kissinger's personal flaws - he was obsessed with secrecy and bureaucratic infighting in an administration that self-destructed in its abuse of power - as well as his great strengths as a diplomat. We see Kissinger negotiating, threatening and joking with virtually all of the key foreign leaders of the 1970s, from Mao to Brezhnev and Anwar Sadat to Golda Meir."--Jacket."@en ;

Drawing on extensive research from newly declassified files, the author follows Kissinger from his beginnings in the Nixon administration up to the current controversy over whether Kissinger is a war criminal. Hanhimaki guides the reader through White House power struggles and debates behind the Cambodia and Laos invasions, the search for a strategy in Vietnam, the breakthrough with China, and the unfolding of Soviet-American detente. Here, too, are many other international crises of the period - the Indo-Pakistani War, the Yom Kippur War, the Angolan civil war - all set against the backdrop of Watergate." ;
