Review

Praise for Henry Kissinger’s On China


Fascinating, shrewd… [The book’s] portrait of China is informed by Mr. Kissinger’s intimate firsthand knowledge of several generations of Chinese leaders. The book
deftly traces the rhythms and patterns in Chinese history…even as it explicates the philosophical differences that separate it from the United States.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Nobody living can claim greater credit than Mr. Kissinger for America’s 1971 opening to Beijing, after more than two decades of estrangement, and for China’s subsequent opening to the world. So it’s fitting that Mr. Kissinger has now written
On China, a
fluent, fascinating…book that is part history, part memoir and above all an examination of the premises, methods and aims of Chinese foreign policy.”
The Wall Street Journal


Fascinating… In
On China, statesman Henry Kissinger draws on historical records and 40 years of direct interaction with four generations of Chinese leaders to analyze the link between China’s ancient past and its present day trajectory. In doing so, the man who helped shape modern East-West relations presents
an often unsettling, occasionally hopeful and always compelling accounting of what we’re up against.
The Chicago Sun-Times


Fascinating… No living American has played a more important role than Henry Kissinger, the former national security adviser and secretary of state, in bringing about the historic rapprochement between the United States and China. …
[Kissinger] draw[s] deep insights into China’s traumatic encounter with much stronger Western powers.”
The San Francisco Chronicle


On China, Kissinger’s 13th book, blends an
incisive strategic analysis of the moves and countermoves of China, the United States and the former Soviet Union with telling vignettes about his meetings with Chinese Communist Party leaders…
entertaining.
The Los Angeles Times


No one can lay claim to so much influence on the shaping of foreign policy over the past 50 years as Henry Kissinger.”
The Financial Times

“From the eminent elder statesman, an astute appraisal on Chinese diplomacy from ancient times to the fraught present “strategic trust” with the United States. Former Secretary of State Kissinger brings his considerable scholarly knowledge and professional expertise to this chronicle of the complicated evolution and precarious future of Chinese diplomacy with the West. …
Sage words and critical perspective lent by a significant participant in historical events.”
Kirkus Reviews
