About the Book

Brilliant and driven. Self-absorbed and idealistic. A man of enormous appetites and ambitions to match. Richard Holbrooke, an American diplomat and author, played substantial roles in conflicts ranging from Vietnam to Afghanistan. He was admired by some as a peacemaker and detested by others as a troublemaker at a time when the US instinctually acted on the impulse to take the lead on the global stage.

Based on Holbrooke's diaries and papers, award-winning author George Packer's has created an intimate portrait of this complex diplomat. The author argues that America's confidence and energy, its reach and grasp, its excess and blindness "were not so different from Holbrooke's."
