'Kissinger's absorbing book tackles head-on some of the toughest questions of our time . . . Its pages sparkle with insight'
Simon Schama in the NEW YORKER
Spanning more than three centuries, from Cardinal Richelieu to the fragility of the 'New World Order', DIPLOMACY is the now-classic history of international relations by the former Secretary of State and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Kissinger's intimate portraits of world leaders, many from personal experience, provide the reader with a unique insight into what really goes on -- and why -- behind the closed doors of the corridors of power.
'Budding diplomats and politicians should read it as avidly as their predecessors read Machiavelli'
Douglas Hurd in the DAILY TELEGRAPH
'If you want to pay someone a compliment, give them Henry Kissinger's DIPLOMACY ... It is certainly one of the best, and most enjoyable [books] on international relations past and present ... DIPLOMACY should be read for the sheer historical sweep, the characterisations, the story-telling, the ability to look at large parts of the world as a whole'
Malcolm Rutherford in the FINANCIAL TIMES
