In a gravelly voice, Malcolm Hillgartner narrates this dense biography of one of the nation's most influential strategic thinkers of the twentieth century, Henry Kissinger. Reading effortlessly, Hillgartner engages with the complex history and politics that made up the life and times of Kissinger before his appointment as Richard Nixon's national security adviser. Hillgartner shifts intonation for quotes and clearly identifies footnotes--drawn from primary sources, archives, and a multitude of published sources--without breaking his narration. His stentorian voice is perfect for this biography of an uncommonly strong personality. Using subtle shifts in pacing, Hillgartner draws the listener into the ever-increasing political tensions at home, particularly during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Listeners will be fascinated.
