The year 1973 should have been Henry Kissinger's time of triumph. But it wasn’t. Fist came defeat in Vietnam, then Watergate and the president's resignation, war in the Middle East, and an economic collapse caused by the Arab oil embargo. Instead of progressing, as he had expected, Kissinger would confront some of the most critical policy challenges of his career. In Kissinger: 1973, The Crucial Year, Alistair Horne paints a portrait of a man, a country, and a presidency at a critical point.
