Henry Kissinger: The Anguish of Power
Henry Kissinger: The Anguish of Power
By John G. Stoessinger
Norton, 1976, 234 pp.

A lean and laudatory study of the direct connection between Secretary Kissinger's ideas and his deeds by a noted scholar and friend. The author aims to counter the public's tendency to see Kissinger as a mythological hero or demon. Although somewhat similar to Stephen Graubard's Kissinger: Portrait of a Mind (1973), this work is more readable, less diffuse.
