They were perhaps the most powerful, ruthless, flawed and fascinating duo in modern times: President Nixon and his secretary of state, Henry Kissinger. Both had risen from nothing to conquer the world stage, both were ambitious, manipulative, relentlessly driven and plagued by inner demons. And both mistrusted everyone around them - including each other.
Tapping into a host of recently declassified documents, Nixon and Kissinger is the most revealing account ever of an extraordinary partnership: their rivalry, plotting, insults and paranoia, their deals with power breakers at home and abroad - from China to Chile, Vietnam to the Soviet Union - and their nemesis, Watergate.
