Book Review: World Order by Henry Kissinger
~ Contributed by Cathy, Art Music & Media
World Order by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is a remarkably well-presented explanation about the histories of the pertinent parts of the world involved in today’s crises in the Middle East, including Europe, the United States, Asia, India, the Middle East and Russia. Kissinger explains how each of these areas evolved to their current state and why the problems we see today are so complicated, far more so than one would suspect.
It is extremely well organized and easy to grasp. It is written clearly and precisely. I wish I had had that kind of overarching understanding of how the political cultures of the world inter-related (or did not relate) when taking required history in college. I may have enjoyed it more! I hope our political leaders will read this book.
