More About To End a War by Richard Holbrooke
 
 
 
Overview

"        One of the most important and readable diplomatic memoirs of recent times. . . . His account should restore some respect to the much maligned art of diplomacy."
--The Washington Post

"        Richard Holbrooke does for diplomacy what Indiana Jones does for archaeology
. . . a cliffhanger."        --USA Today

"        Holbrooke is brilliant, forceful, determined, focused. . . . In his intuitive feel for the realities of power diplomacy and his strategic vision, he is the heir to Henry Kissinger in American diplomacy."        --New York Post

Chosen by The New York Times as one of the Best Books of the Year, To End a War is a brilliant portrayal of high-wire, high-stakes diplomacy in one of the toughest negotiations of modern times. A classic account of how foreign policy is made in Washington, its lessons go far beyond the boundaries of the Balkans and provide a powerful argument for continued American lead-
ership in the modern world.

"        Easily the best book of recent years on how to carry off a diplomatic negotia-
tion. . . . We can only hope that the White House, Congress and the public are listening, and that generations of Americans will read Holbrooke's book."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"        A compelling account of lockup, great-power diplomacy. . . . To End a War is a
riveting book."        --Time

"        A superb book, one that is clear and honest."        --Newsweek

"        A heartfelt call to America to use its power when societies break down. . . . His com-
bativeness may offend the pinstripe set, but it is wonderfully refreshing on the page."
--The New York Times
