RIP Zbigniew Brzezisnki

Recommended Posts

Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter's former national security adviser, has died. He was easily one of the most interesting and readable intellects on American foreign policy.

In the late 1950s, he predicted how the Soviet Union would collapse. In the late 1990s, he pretty much predicted how 21st century foreign policy was likely to be for US, EU, Russia, China, and some other places. I don't think I've ever read any writer on US politics with more foresight than Brzezinski. 

Although, I opposed most of his interventionist and hawkish foreign policy, he was definitely one of my favorite authors. Of his books, I read four of them, but also read parts of other books. I highly recommend The Grand Chessboard, the best book I've ever read on geopolitics. In fact, I even made a board game based on it, which I think would translate to an incredible video game on geopolitical influence.
