    Fascinating series of essays about an enigmatic scholarpolicy advocate who some derail as a vile flip flopper and others praise as one of the most brilliant foreign policy minds of the last generation

    Interesting perspective on an interesting man The structure of the book allows many academics to weigh in on zbig but it leaves it disjointed and hard to get through Best part was the interview at the end between Gati and brziezinski

    In short a must read for anyone interested in Zbigniew Brzezinski both as a scholar and as a political strategist
