The Trial of Henry Kissinger, Christopher Hitchens. Verso, 160 pages, $22.00.
From the way that Christopher Hitchens tears into bloated reputations, it's
easy to imagine that in another age he would have spent many a predawn hour
happily preparing to duel. Now he has flung his challenge at Henry Kissinger, a
man who generally liked to use the B-52 for predawn confrontations, though he
might also send ground forces and, on special occasions, even an assassin.
