Though this book is by Christopher Hitchens, it is markedly absent of his verbose prose. He constructed this book in the effort to further legal prosecution of Henry Kissinger in some court for war crimes, treason and much more. The thrust perfectly surmised in this paragraph: "Here one must pause for a recaputaluation

An incisive demolishing of Henry Kissinger and the US Government of the time by one of the great investigative journalists of all time, Christopher Hitchens

He also wrote the international bestsellers god Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, Hitch-22: A Memoir, and Arguably. An incisive demolishing of Henry Kissinger and the US Government of the time by one of the great investigative journalists of all time, Christopher Hitchens.

“His own lonely impunity is rank; it smells to heaven. If it is allowed to persist then we shall shamefully vindicate the ancient philosopher Anacharsis, who maintained that laws were like cobwebs; strong enough to detain only the weak, and too weak to hold the strong. In the name of innumerable victims known and unknown, it is time for justice to take a hand.”With the detention of Augusto Pinochet, and intense international pressure for the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic, the possibility of international law acting against tyrants around the world is emerging as a reality. Yet, as Christopher Hitchens demonstrates in this compact, incendiary book, the West need not look far to find suitable candidates for the dock. The United States is home to an individual whose record of war crimes bears comparison with the worst dictators of recent history. Please stand, ex-Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Henry A. Kissinger. Weighing the evidence with judicial care, and developing his case with scrupulous parsing of the written record, Hitchens takes the floor as prosecuting counsel. He investigates, in turn, Kissinger’s involvement in the war in Indochina, mass murder in Bangladesh, planned assassinations in Santiago, Nicosia and Washington, D.C., and genocide in East Timor. Drawing on first-hand testimony, previously unpublished documentation, and broad sweeps through material released under the Freedom of Information Act, he mounts a devastating indictment of a man whose ambition and ruthlessness have directly resulted in both individual murders and widespread, indiscriminate slaughter.

Wow! Another amazing polemic from one of the masters! This book draws one in deeply. I remember the halcyon days of the Kissinger years (sarcasm intended) and so many memories came flooding back during my read of this excellent work. Mr. Hitchens spares no lash in his indictment of Kissinger. This book did something quite remarkable for me: it changed my mind. Very much worth the read.

I sometimes feel like I'm too dumb to read Hitchens. I would think that he would clearly and concisely spell out his justification for labeling Kissinger a war criminal, and he does so, but with a lot of unfamiliar references. Hitchens assumes that you are already familiar with the characters he uses to build his case against Kissinger, and I had to spend just as much time Googling and Wikipedia'ing all the characters in this book as I did reading it.
