        It is often taken for granted that Henry Kissinger was (and remains) a text book example of a practitioner of realpolitik; both in his diplomatic and political record, and through his academic Del Pero’s chief task in his short monograph, The Eccentric Realist: Henry Kissinger and the Shaping of American Foreign Policy, is to break up this image and paint a more nuanced picture. Henry Kissinger dominated American foreign relations like no other figure in recent history. He negotiated an end to American involvement in the Vietnam War, opened relations with Communist China, and orchestrated détente with the Soviet Union. Yet he is also the man behind the secret bombing of Cambodia and policies leading to the overthrow of Chile's President Salvador Allende.

      In conversation with Nixon shortly after a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir on March 1, , Kissinger stated, "The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy, and if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.". For both Dulles and Kissinger, as American foreign-policy decision makers, the Soviet Union was the primary object and main focus of United States foreign policy. To Dulles, the Soviet Union was the center of a monolithic force called international Communism. To Kissinger, American-Soviet relations were the core of any stable international order.

      Henry Kissinger's role in the Vietnam War prolonged the American tragedy and doomed the government of South Vietnam The American war in Vietnam was concluded in after eight years of fighting, bloodshed, and loss. Yet the terms of the truce that ended the war were effectively identical to what had been offered to the Nixon administration four years earlier.   Henry Kissinger is an icon within the American foreign policy community, but that was not always the case. A World Restored Metternich, Castlereagh and the Problem of Peace, , his first book, was written in the early s while Kissinger was a young doctoral student at Harvard.
