Book Description

In The Inevitability of Tragedy Barry Gewen argues that a reconsideration of Henry Kissinger's career is essential at a time when American foreign policy lacks direction. He traces Kissinger's profound connection to a core group of thinkers from the father of Realism, Hans Morgenthau, to Leo Strauss and Hannah Arendt--all German-Jewish �migr�s who shared his concerns about the weaknesses of democracy--in this fascinating account of the origins of Kissinger's sober worldview. Gewen places Kissinger's thought in a European context and explores how deeply he was impacted by his experience as a refugee from Nazi Germany. He analyzes Kissinger's contentious policies in terms of his definition of Realism, the belief that world politics is based on an inevitable, tragic competition for power.
