Henry Kissinger’s On China, our final book for 2016, is a big one in every way. Its 600-plus pages cover not only Kissinger’s role—as President Richard Nixon’s National Security Advisor and Secretary of State—in building rapprochement between China and the US but also the impact of China’s history on its foreign policy. Kissinger’s personal acquaintance with Chinese leaders from the early 1970s to today makes On China a must-read for those interested in Sino-Western relationships. As background, Kissinger discusses China and his involvement with it here.
