A savage war of peace : Algeria, 1954-1962 by Alistair Horne ( Book )
42 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 2,112 libraries worldwide
The Algerian War lasted from 1954 to 1962. It caused the fall of six French governments, led to the collapse of the Fourth Republic, and came close to provoking a civil war on French soil. More than a million Muslim Algerians died in the conflict and as many European settlers were driven into exile. Above all, the war was marked by an unholy marriage of revolutionary terror and state torture. At the time, this brutal and intractable conflict seemed like a French affair. But from the perspective of half a century, it looks less like the last colonial war than the first postmodern one: a full-dress rehearsal for the sort of amorphous struggle that convulsed the Balkans in the 1990s and that now ravages the Middle Eas--struggles in which religion, nationalism, imperialism, and terrorism assume previously unimagined degrees of intensity.

Kissinger : 1973, the crucial year by Alistair Horne ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 906 libraries worldwide
1973 should have been Kissinger's year of triumph--a time to bask in his hard-won achievements and build on his successes. Kissinger's strategy of opening the door to China and détente with the Soviet Union had been judged an overwhelming success. After furthering his policy of realpolitik through backchannel diplomacy during Nixon's first term, Kissinger was finally awarded the plum position of Secretary of State. But then major events shattered whatever peace and calm America had attained: defeat in Vietnam; then Watergate, culminating in Nixon's resignation; war in the Middle East; and finally an economic collapse caused by the Arab oil embargo. Rather than progressing on all fronts, as he had expected, Kissinger would confront some of the most critical policy challenges of his career. Based on full access to the subject and his papers, this is an intimate portrait of a man, a country, and a presidency at a critical point.--From publisher description.
