'A good liar must have a good memory: Kissinger is a stupendous liar with a remarkable memory.' - Christopher Hitchens

Drawing on first-hand testimony, previously unpublished documentation and broad sweeps through material released under the Freedom of Information Act, Christopher Hitchens mounts a devastating indictment of a man whose ambition and ruthlessness, he alleges, have directly resulted in both individual murders and widespread, indiscriminate slaughter.

    Comments about The Trial of Henry Kissinger:

    Hitchens once more delivers a scathing review of one of the 20th centuries most well know figures, this time Henry Kissinger. A man so blindly devoted to his own image and his nations that he produced arguably the most collectively shameful period in US foreign policy where you could be an oppressive, murderous despot as long as you weren't communist. Hitchens presents a compelling argument outlining Kissinger's murderous and most of the time illegal diplomatic decisions in the likes of East Timor, Chile, Bangladesh, Laos, Cambodia and numerous other victims of Republican foreign policy throughout the late twentieth century. The evidence is damning to say the least and warrants the question why Kissinger escaped an International trial for his self gratifying acts which cost the lives of millions.

    Comment on this review

    Christopher Hitchens

    Born on April 13, 1949 in Portsmouth, England, Christopher Hitchens wrote for a variety of English magazines before moving to the United States in 1981. Hitchens established himself as one of the leading intellectual writers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, willing to offend his readership with his controversial positions on matters such as religion, art, politics, war and literature.

    Hitchens died on December 15, 2011, from complications arising from oesophageal cancer. His death prompted tributes and eulogies from a range of public figures, including Tony Blair, Richard Dawkins, Martin Amis, James Fenton, and Stephen Fry.
