"The Trial of Henry Kissinger" (2001), is Christopher Hitchens' brief examination of the alleged war crimes of Henry Kissinger, the National Security Advisor and later Secretary of State for President Nixon and President Ford. Acting in the role of the prosecution, Hitchens presents evidence of Kissinger's complicity in a series of alleged war crimes in Indochina, Bangladesh, Chile, Cyprus and East Timor.

Highlights from the book were serialized in "Harper's Magazine" in February and March 2001 (see "The Case Against Henry Kissinger", [http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Kissinger/CaseAgainst1_Hitchens.html Part 1] and [http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Kissinger/CaseAgainst2_Hitchens.html Part 2] ).

This book inspired the creation of a 2002 documentary film, "The Trials of Henry Kissinger".
