'This book is so studiedly defamatory that if Kissinger values his reputation, he really must sue.' * Literary Review * 'This is a disturbing glimpse into the dark side of American power, whose consequences in remote corners of the globe are all too often ignored. Its countless victims have found an impassioned and skilful advocate in Christopher Hitchens.' * Sunday Times *
