First edition of the first volume of Ferguson’s definitive biography of Henry Kissinger. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by both Niall Ferguson and Henry Kissinger on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket.
The Idealist is the story of the single most important strategic thinker America has ever produced. It is also a political Bildungsroman, explaining how “Dr. Strangelove” ended up as consigliere to a politician he had always abhorred. Like Ferguson’s classic two-volume history of the House of Rothschild, Kissinger sheds dazzling new light on an entire era. The essential account of an extraordinary life, it recasts the cold war world.
