Who Wrote This?

Probably the least inspired issue of the New York Times Book Review ever this week. But this quote, from the cover article . . . on a new book on Dean Acheson. Who wrote it?

The position of secretary of state is potentially the most fulfilling in the government short of the presidency. Its scope is global; ultimately it rests on almost philosophical assumptions as to the nature of the world order and the relationship of order to progress and national interest. Lacking such a conceptual framework, incoherence looms in the face of the daily task of redefining America's relationship to the world via the thousands of messages from nearly 200 diplomatic posts and the constant flow of communication from the Executive Departments--all this against the backdrop of Congressional liaison and press inquiry.

Answer in comments. Hint: The evil genius was featured in a recent TMcD post.

Henry A. Kissinger, beeyatches. But you knew that. And, um, is power still the most powerful aphrodesiac? It seems that Hammerin' Hank still has the juice, but, the question is, would anyone want to squeeze his lemon?

EEEEEW. Sorry. Too bitter.
