Kissinger's ShadowA new account of America's most controversial diplomat that moves beyond praise or condemnation to reveal Kissinger as the architect of America's current imperial stance. Greg Grandin argues that to understand the crisis of contemporary America-its neverending wars abroad and political polarization at home-we have to understand Henry Kissinger. Believing that reality could be bent to his will, insisting that intuition is more important in determining policy than hard facts, and vowing that past mistakes should never hinder future bold action, Kissinger anticipated, even enabled, the ascendance of the neoconservative idealists who took America into crippling wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Hardbound, 288 pages, $28 plus $5 shipping.
