Excellent history of the cold war, as seen through the experiences of George Kennan and Paul Nitze. The title actually does a bit of a disservice to both men, as they are much too complex to be so simply characterized. The complexities of the issues they dealt with are equally complex and the book makes for absorbing reading. The author is actually Paul Nitze's grandson, but you would never know that from reading the book. Continually fascinating - I highly recommend it.
