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.
