Niall Ferguson - Kissinger: 1923-1968: The Idealist — at GW Jack Morton Auditorium

Monday, October 5, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

In Kissinger: 1923-1968: The Idealist, the first of his projected two-volumes on Henry Kissinger, Ferguson delves into the statesman’s early life and thinking, providing the little-known background that formed this influential figure’s world view. Fleeing Hitler, Kissinger spent his first years in New York doing factory work before the draft sent him into action at the Battle of the Bulge. Post-war studies at Harvard immersed him in the ideas of Kant and Metternich, setting him on course to becoming the strategist we know. Ferguson traces his subject’s intellectual coming-of-age with a depth and scope that recalls his magisterial work on Siegmund Warburg, The High Financier, and his comprehensive investigation of The House of Rothschild.
