Author of Kissinger: Volume I: The Idealist, 1923-1968

Acclaimed historian and New York Times best selling author Niall Ferguson examines the first half of Henry Kissinger’s extraordinary life in this definitive biography, based on unprecedented access to his private papers.

In this first of two volumes, Ferguson shows that what Kissinger achieved before his appointment as Richard Nixon’s national security adviser was astonishing in its own right.
