Publisher's Summary

It might seem a bit odd to describe Henry Kissinger as an American nationalist. He was never known to be the flag-waving sort. On the surface, everything would point in the opposite direction: his background in academia, his choice of diplomacy as a vocation, and his thick German accent all point to a more cosmopolitan outlook detached from the nation he represented. 

Even when he was in America, it wasn't Middle America. Henry Kissinger was a creature of the coasts. He came of age in New York City. He studied and taught at Harvard. He advised presidents from offices in Washington, DC. At the height of his popularity, he dated Hollywood starlets. After leaving government service, he returned to New York to consult with business executives on their international operations. 

Henry Kissinger is among the most controversial figures in American life. He has been lauded as a diplomatic Superman and cursed as a war criminal, credited with turning the tide of the Cold War and accused of causing genocide. At various times, he has inspired both admiration and deep suspicion among the American public.
