    A landmark collection, spanning 90 years of U.S. history, of the never-before-published diaries of George F. Kennan, America’s most famous diplomat. On a hot July afternoon in 1953, George F. Kennan descended the steps of the State Department building as a newly retired man. His career had been tumultuous: early postings in eastern Europe followed by Berlin in 1940-41 and Moscow in the last year of World War II. In 1946, the 42-year-old Kennan authored the "Long Telegram", a 5,500-word indictment of the Kremlin that became mandatory reading in Washington.

    Jean says: "a complex man"
    "This is a phenomenal book. Amazing book."

    Story

    This book is a selections of Kennan's letter and lifelong diary. Written by one of the most eloquent and brilliant men of the centuries he lived through, it offers a fascinating story of one man's life of thinking, both professionally and personal, geopolitical, in depression and almost up to his moment of death at age 100 plus. You are in his mind and the editor did a wonderful job selecting letters and diary entries so that this flows like a book written over 80 years by a truly profound thinker, writer, and man. One of the best books I have read (note: I am a Kennan book collector and this book makes an ideal pair with Gaddes biography of Kennan)
