Review:

"An artful study . . . that helps to set the record straight. . . . His assemblage of data is extraordinary."
--The New York Times

"Kennedy traces this . . . story with concision, grace, and fairness. Nearly every page contains some delicious morsel . . . reflecting Kennedy's intelligence and deep knowledge of world affairs."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Amid the morass of commissions and conferences, and failures like Rwanda, he manages to find something convincingly heroic."
--The New Yorker
