THE HAWK AND THE DOVE: PAUL NITZE, GEORGE KENNAN, AND THE HISTORY OF THE COLD WAR

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Working in the intricate web of American diplomacy during the Cold War, Paul Nitze and George Kennan became legendary. This double biography keeps them entwined like thorny roses of two colors on a trellis. Their accomplishments in designing and managing U.S./Soviet policy generate a riveting account that is logically organized, eloquently written, and well documented. Michael Prichard, one of the best nonfiction audio narrators, lifts the prose from the page to reality with his ability to enrich it with nuance and fluidity. He creates identifiable character voices for the principals without sounding comedic. Prichard’s method of allowing the humor and satire to speak for themselves encourages listeners to smile at whatever they wish. The production won’t disappoint listeners looking for both entertainment and political history. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
