Facts on File
Henry Alfred Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 for his part in negotiating a cease-fire between North and South Vietnam and the subsequent U.S. withdrawal. As national security advisor and secretary of state under Richard Nixon, and secretary of state for Gerald Ford, Kissinger played a pivotal role in American foreign policy. Born into a Jewish family in Bavaria, Germany, Kissinger moved to New York City in 1938 with his family, fleeing Hitler's regime. He became an American citizen in 1943 and served as a German interpreter for the 970th Counter Intelligence Corps in World War II. He attended Harvard University, became a professor there, and joined the Nixon administration in 1968. Henry Kissinger provides excellent coverage of the life and work of one of the 20th century's greatest diplomats with selected writings, related sidebars, and balanced commentary.
