Product description

This second volume of Henry Kissinger s monumental memoirs covers his years as President Richard Nixon s Secretary of State (1972 1974), including the ending of the Vietnam War, the 1973 Middle East War and oil embargo, Watergate, and Nixon s resignation. "Years of Upheaval "opens with Dr. Kissinger being appointed Secretary of State. Among other events of these turbulent years that he recounts are his trip to Hanoi after the Vietnam cease-fire, his efforts to settle the war in Cambodia, the Year of Europe, two Nixon-Brezhnev summit meetings and the controversies over arms control and detente, the military alert and showdown with the Soviet Union over the Middle East war, the subsequent oil crisis, the origins of shuttle diplomacy in the Middle East, the fall of Salvador Allende in Chile, and the tumultuous events surrounding Nixon s resignation. Throughout are candid appraisals of world leaders, including Nixon, Golda Meir, Anwar Sadat, King Faisal, Hafez al-Asad, Chairman Mao, Leonid Brezhnev, Willy Brandt, Helmut Schmidt, Georges Pompidou, and many more. At once illuminating, fascinating, and profound, "Years of Upheaval "is a lasting contribution to the history of our time by one of its chief protagonists.
