From Booklist

Neither time nor the strong reactions his person and Nixon-era actions evoke has dampened Kissinger's talent for cogent distillation of international complexity. If anything, this closely argued work, spaciously peppered with anecdotes and personal observations, is his best yet. It is not, be mindful, a diplomatic history per se, but instead a reminder of the geopolitical constraints on America's endeavor--the third this century--to fashion a new world order. Naturally, Kissinger's approach is historical, beginning with Cardinal Richelieu's policy in the Thirty Years' War, but his arguments are conceptual dissections of the principles on which the statesman of the moment operated. Whether discussing the Cardinal's raison d'{‚}etat, Metternich's (and then Palmerston's) balance-of-power, Bismarck's naked Realpolitik, Wilson's rejection of the above in favor of a vaporous collective security, the aggressive ideologies of expansion that issued from World War I, or the more solid collective security embodied in NATO, Kissinger is implicitly showing America's present (and near future) administrators the analogous choices on their post-Cold War menu. Referring often to John Quincy Adams' famed 1821 admonition that "America should not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy," Kissinger cautions against the exceptional American temptation, regardless of party, to compel a democratic transformation of the world. He would prefer the revival of a balance-of-power outlook, which America has never practiced, but through which, among other outcomes, Russia becomes reconciled to its reduced, though still vast, territory. Authorial fame and powerful prose will secure Kissinger's new book a slot atop the sales lists. Gilbert Taylor

From Kirkus Reviews

The Nobel laureate and former national security advisor and secretary of state (Years of Upheaval, 1982, etc.) presents an engrossing and monumental (in every sense) historical survey of diplomacy from the 17th century to the present. Kissinger begins his narrative after the Peace of Westphalia (1648), when militarily ascendant France strove for dominance on the continent, preventing the fragmented German states from coalescing into a major power. Thereafter Britain, its own internal turbulence quelled and its monarchy restored, sought to check France by creating alliances of weaker European states. Kissinger shows how wily statesmen like Richelieu, Britain's William III, Metternich, and Bismarck frankly pursued their own nation-state's interests without regard for the idealistic concepts of collective security that have motivated American policy since the Wilson administration: only Britain, because of its unique geographical position, actively pursued a policy of promoting equilibrium on the continent. Kissinger extensively discusses the unraveling of the post-Napoleonic arrangements in the decades leading up to WW I, Soviet and German consolidation and French and British demoralization in the years after the Versailles treaty, and the dominance of the Soviet-American rivalry in world politics after World War II. Kissinger draws fascinatingly on his own experiences as President Nixon's chief diplomat to illustrate his arguments about diplomacy. Finally, he argues that the ideal of collective security that American policy has promoted since Wilson's presidency and throughout the Cold War, while sometimes effective, is often weak because it is not strongly grounded in national interests. Buttressing his argument with a sweeping historical survey, Kissinger persuasively contends that leaders of the western democracies, particularly the US, should leaven their idealism in the turbulent post-Cold War era with the realistic pursuit of concrete national interests. Profound and important. (Book-of-the- Month main selection for April; History Book Club main selection) -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Dr. Kissinger seems to know a lot about history, being a smart and intellectual man with the brainpower to write a 1,000 page book. I am reading this book for my Global History class in school, and I think it is a great "outside source," as compared to the school textbooks. Kissinger's Diplomacy makes a great tool to use, as with the textbook, which reinforces knowledge of history. As we go, chapter by chapter, in each the text and Diplomacy, we see how each interprets their ideas, and some of Kissinger's own interpretations. Using Diplomacy, I have seen that I better understand history, from two separate points of view. The only problem I have had with the book is that I found it hard to understand and interpret some of Kissinger's quotes and ideas. The book, I think is meant to be read in a higher level of schooling, such as college, but not in high school. I probably wouldn't have read it if it wasn't for my Global History teacher, but I can't complain because I got my "A+" out of it. Way to go, Dr. K!

A book showing how one can work towards a "We Are One" Diplomacy and a warning that nations must come to their belief, conclusions and actions of becoming a Democracy form of government onj their own, by their own and in their own time. At the same time, I noticed Henry does not talk about the danger he and Richard Nixon set by conducting Diplomacy in complete secrecy. This is important. Because if two men can give away Taiwan just to take the opportunity to open up China regardless of the pros and cons, it is still a dangerous way to operate. It is like Claudius the Roman Emperor who refused to promote his son Britannicus and supported Nero to Emperor assuming in the end the People of Rome would seek the recall of the Senate to rule Rome. However, Claudius's miscalculation was that his good policies and programs actually reinforced the Emperor's rule by the good things he accomplished. In the end, the People and The Senate Of Rome never returned and the Emperors' system continued unabated and evetually corruptible. It shows that although Nixon and Kissenger did a good thing by opening China doing it is secret could cause other President's to follow and mistakes could be made by future incompetent administrations, (Like The Current),using the same tactics without gaining the same quality of goals. The oxymoron can occur when there is a place for secrecy in Diplomacy but not in a Democracy. At the same time, some people and cultures can be very fruitful and content being ruled without a Democratic based government. It is not what I prefer, but it must be recognized and accepted to be a basic truth. Another good book but still second to Struazz-Hupe` views, policies and writings, in my very humble opinion, and very humble compared to such men as both, to say the least!

Kissinger writes of the history of international politics from the Peace of Westphallia until the modern era with obvious familiarity and ease. The chapters can be read individually or as a continuing history. This book proved worthwhile not only by giving me greater insight into politics among nations, but also some very well appreciated background on subject matter covered in my Modern Europe 306 history course. The philosophies of Idealism and Realism shine through, and Kissenger always a realist, presents his case well. One aspect missing from this otherwise nearly complete volume is a more telling account of his involvment in the context of the greater scheme of things: Arms talks, Indonesia and Chile to name a few. Taken as a whole I recomend this to any student of history, international affairs, and especially to the individual who would like a greater understanding of how things international work.

It is really too bad that book evaluation grades are so inflated. That's such a pity because I would REALLY like to assign "Diplomacy" the rating I would give to no other book. "Diplomacy" is a comprehensive, very well written overview of the diplomatic history of the last 2 centuries. However, it is much more than just a history book. Kissinger not only describes the events, but shows motives and causes behind them. Some people would probably say that the book is cynical, I would counter that it is just an excellent reflection of a human nature. If you are at all interested in foreing affairs, you must read "Diplomacy".

Henry Kissinger, Jahrgang 1923, geboren in Fürth und 1938 mit seinen Eltern in die USA ausgewandert. Er diente den Präsidenten Nixon und Ford als Nationaler Sicherheitsberater sowie als Aussenminister. Seine Amtszeit war insbesondere von drei Erfolgen gekennzeichnet: Entspannung mit der UdSSR, Wiederaufnahme der diplomatischen Beziehungen mit China, diplomatische Vermittlungsleistungen in Nahost. Sein Arbeitsstil war geprägt von Alleingängen mit denen er die Bürokratie seiner Behörde überging. Sein Leitfaden: die Staatsraison, über alle moralischen Prinzipien gestellt.

Es kann somit nicht verwundert, dass Kissinger in seinem Buch über Diplomatie insbesondere die Realpolitiker ihrer Zeit in einem positiven Licht glänzen lässt: Kardinal Richelieu, Fürst Metternich, Fürst Bismarck, aber auch Theodor Roosevelt und natürlich Nixon. Wo aber ist der im Kongo umgekommene UN-Generalsekretär Dag Hammarskjöld? Als der UN-Sicherheitsrat während der Suezkrise durch das anglo-französische Veto lahmgelegt ist, gelingt ihm ein genialer Schachzug: er reaktiviert den "Uniting for Peace Resolution"-Mechanismus mit Hilfe der blockfreien Staaten, ein unglaublicher Präzedenzfall. Hammarskjöld verstand wie kaum ein anderer UN-Generalsekretär die ihm gegebenen Mittel zu nutzen. Innerhalb von 48 Stunden organisierte er die erste wirklich internationale Polizeitruppe, die UNEF, eine moralische Instanz, ein Puffer zwischen den Konfliktparteien. Hammarskjölds Vision der Vereinten Nationen war aussergewöhnlich, etwas wirklich Neues entstand unter seiner Führung. Seine so genannte vorbeugende Diplomatie war wegweisend. In Kissingers Buch jedoch erfährt er keine Würdigung.
