Cyprus and Kissinger: Killing the Myth

with Dr William Malleson

  • When: – 9:00 pm
  • Where: Online (YouTubeFacebook)
  • Entry: Free

Event Details

The mainstream press and various embedded party-political designer academics and self-serving journalists have tended to play down Kissinger’s crimes against humanity. However, a perusal of the archives, in particular the British ones, gives a very different story, leading this historian to see Kissinger as a mediocre pseudo-intellectual academic, who owed his prominence to Nelson Rockefeller. He depended on his book A World Restored, following his obsession with, especially, Metternich, to the grave. This paper tells the story as it really is.
