Merritt Bookstore: Reckless: Henry Kissinger and the Tragedy of Vietnam | Robert Brigham. Using newly available archival material, Robert K. Brigham punctures the myth of Kissinger as an infallible mastermind. Instead, he constructs a portrait of a rash, opportunistic politician whose personal political rivalries and strategic confusion doubled the length of the Vietnam War. Now, perhaps for the first time, we can see the full scale of that tragedy and the machinations that fed it. Join us upstairs at Merritt Bookstore with Robert Brigham for a discussion of this fascinating topic with opportunities to ask questions and get your books signed! Noon, free.
