Kissinger is a political cancer.

Most of the book is a bit pedantic and dry, giving a statist, political realist and historical summary of international order. The chapter on Islam, whilst diplomatic, is also, I think controversial, but insightful too. It is chapter nine and the conclusion that I thought the work really came alive: that part should be expanded and made into a book unto itself.

Typical government narrative, intelligence propaganda, revisionist history that would have Howard Zinn rolling in his grave and Noam Chomsky screaming, "This is why I'm an anarchist," in his NPR voice of course. Hank basically states that there can be relatively safe world order so long as everyone get's in line with our idea of Westphalian sovereignty and agrees with everything we say. It just seems so hypocritical to ever talk about a nuclear Iran or WMD's when we are a nuclear power and are the only country to use them and many other WMD's. Like War and Peace I felt I needed to read Hank K. at least once in my life and I fully regret both choices. Now I think I'll try the other global manipulator, Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Look at the state of world affairs and foreign policy...it isn't something to brag about. This manifesto is obnoxious at best.

If there truly were lone gunman, this guy would have been shot long ago, or at least dragged to the International Court of Justice at The Hague. What a pompous pile of slime.
