Greg Grandin - Kissinger's Shadow: The Long Reach of America's Most Controversial Statesman

Monday, August 31, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A professor of history at NYU, Grandin is the author of several books on the Americas, ranging from The Guatemala Reader to bestsellers including The Empire of Necessity and Fordlandia, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Widening his scope to consider global foreign policy, Grandin draws on newly declassified documents and on Kissinger’s writings to show that the former Secretary of State has been the pivotal influence in determining how the U.S. understands its role in the world. Grandin traces our recent military actions, for instance, back to Kissinger’s belief that past mistakes should not inhibit bold new actions.
