“Captures [Brzezinski’s] extraordinary insights into international politics as well as his commitment to a morally inspired political realism . . . superb.” —International Affairs

Zbigniew Brzezinski’s multifaceted career dealing with U.S. security and foreign policy led him from the halls of academia to multiple terms in public service, including a stint as President Carter’s National Security Advisor from 1977 to 1981. His strategic vision continues to influence our world today.

To assess the ramifications of Brzezinski’s engagement in world politics and policy making, Charles Gati has enlisted many of the top foreign policy players of recent decades to reflect on and analyze the man and his work. A senior scholar in Eastern European and Russian studies, Gati observed firsthand much of the history and politics surrounding Brzezinski’s career. His vibrant introduction and concluding one-on-one interview with Brzezinski lucidly frame the book’s critical assessment of this major statesman’s accomplishments.

“A highly readable volume of reflections on the legendary Cold Warrior by academics, journalists and Brzezinski's colleagues . . . A welcome addition to the field of political science.” —New Eastern Europe
