10/10

I’m giving this five stars for what it should be – it’s the most expansive, authoritative history of diplomacy and foreign relations that may have ever been written. The amount that Kissinger knows is just mind-bogglingly. There is just so much detail…

…and therein lies its weakness. This is a long, tedious read. I finished it, but towards the end, I just felt like I was looking at words. You’d almost need to read this two or three times, with a discussion group, to get the full effect of it.
