Niall Ferguson Biography Portrays Henry Kissinger as an Idealist

at 9:00 AM
 (U.S. News and World Report)

Niall Ferguson's "Kissinger: The Idealist, 1923-1968" paints a portrait of Henry Kissinger's youth in Bavaria and explores the former diplomat and Secretary of State's formative years in Washington. We'll talk with Ferguson about Kissinger's early life and criticism that the authorized biography overlooks Kissinger's reputation as a war monger and jaded practitioner of realpolitik. We'll also find out about Ferguson's decision to leave Harvard and take a full-time senior fellowship at Stanford's Hoover Institution.

Guests:

Niall Ferguson, professor of history, Center for European Studies, Harvard University; author of "Kissinger: The Idealist, 1923-1968"
