It’s a daunting prospect to think that one will need nearly a full workweek to listen to this historical account of Nixon and Kissinger. The book examines one of the most complex and, in many ways, successful relationships in modern diplomatic history. With new information garnered from the recently declassified transcripts of Henry Kissinger’s phone conversations as secretary of state, author Robert Dallek offers listeners a piercing look at Kissinger’s fragile ego, his frustration with Nixon’s distraction and heavy drinking during the Watergate affair, and his ability to outmaneuver his counterparts in a three-way diplomatic chess match with the Soviets and Chinese. The combination of Dallek’s superbly detailed text and a consistently well-paced narration by Nelson Runger makes this the audiobook equivalent of a page-turner. J.B.B.
