The Complicated Legacy of Henry Kissinger: A Conversation with Thomas Schwartz

Then & Now

Henry Kissinger is arguably one of the most important and controversial contemporary figures in U.S. foreign policy. As a former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor during the Nixon and Ford Administrations, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and an accused war criminal, Kissinger is both revered and reviled. This week on Then & Now UCLA History Professor Kevin Kim interviews Vanderbilt University Professor Thomas Alan Schwartz on his recent book, Henry Kissinger and American Power: A Political Biography. They discuss Kissinger's contradictions, the lessons his diplomacy offers the Biden Administration, and the state of international relations today.

Bernie Sanders & a toad native to the Sonoran Desert are the key to destroying Henry Kissinger once and for all!!

Kill Your Landlord

Here's the same video we  watched and discussed of the riots near Boulder, Colorado just recently. https://youtu.be/VtuAEb_14woIn this episode we discuss a wide range of topics that include the mental strain  that young Americans (college students) are feeling  and the need to somehow express the angst & frustration  during a global pandemic. We also look into some of the latest eviction stories across the country. As well as debate  on how we could have been more effective during mandatory lockdowns, or if lockdowns were actually a waste of everyone's time? We briefly talk about the failed attempt to increase the min wage to 15/hr and those who are responsible  for not raising it. We also shed light onto how H. Kissinger STILL TO THIS DAY uses the dark force to seduce n lure the easily corrupted politicians of today.  And we certainly bring up whom the antithesis to super villain Kissinger is, none other than Bernie Sanders.  On a different note, we look into speculation of where all the disposable face mask will end up and what that means to the environment. Sergio breaks down what exactly Red Tide is.   Stripper's boost your immune system therefore it is only obviously that a stripper fund to save a hoe is a must. Lastly we scratch the surface of the drug that comes from a toad native to the Sonoran Desert that produces venom known as 5-MeO-DMT.  Claims of it being six times more powerful than the hallucinogenic DMT, or N, N-dimethyltryptamine

Henry Kissinger and American Power

Horns of a Dilemma

In this episode of Horns of a Dilemma, Thomas Schwartz of Vanderbilt University, discusses his book, Henry Kissinger and American Power: A Political Biography. Few figures in American history are as controversial or divisive as Henry Kissinger. Schwartz argues that Kissinger, while mostly associated with international diplomacy and international affairs, is best understood by understanding him as a domestic political figure whose moves were calculated based on his approval ratings and how he played within the domestic political audience. Schwartz also makes the case that Kissinger’s relationship with President Richard Nixon involved rivalry as well as partnership, and was carefully calculated on Kissinger’s part to present an image that put him in the best and most favorable light to the American public.

Henry Kissinger and American Power: A Political Biography w/ Thomas A. Schwartz

Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

On this edition of Parallax Views, Henry Kissinger is perhaps the most-well-known political figures associated with United State foreign policy and geopolitics since the post-WWII period. Reviled as a war criminal by many, such as Christopher Hitchens and Greg Grandin, and lauded as the 20th century's greatest statesman by others, Kissinger is, regardless of what one may think of him obviously someone who has left a lasting impact. Prof. Thomas A. Schwartz, author of Henry Kissinger and American Power: A Political Biography, joins us on this edition of the program to discuss the life and legacy of Kissinger. Unlike both Kissinger's detractors and his admirers, Schwartz attempts to come somewhere down the middle in his assessment of the former Secretary of State. We discuss Kissinger's early life, his image as a cold calculating figure politically, the Vietnam War and the Nixon/Watergate era, the harshest criticisms of Kissinger, and much, much more.
