In Leadership, a New York Times best seller, Kissinger analyzes the lives of six extraordinary leaders through the distinctive strategies of statecraft they embodied. These leaders and their strategies include: Konrad Adenauer's "strategy of humility" in Germany; Charles de Gaulle's "strategy of will" in France; Richard Nixon's "strategy of equilibrium" in the United States; Anwar Sadat's "strategy of transcendence" in the Middle East; Lee Kuan Yew's "strategy of excellence" in Singapore; and Margaret Thatcher's "strategy of conviction" in Great Britain.

"An extraordinary book by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. In Leadership he presents a fascinating set of historical case studies and political biographies that blend the dance and the dancer, seamlessly." --James Stavridis, The Wall Street Journal
