Summary: Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in BiographyWidely and enthusiastically acclaimed, this is the authorized, definitive biography of one of the most fascinating but troubled figures of the twentieth century by the nation's leading Cold War historian. In the late 1940s, George F. Kennan-then a bright but, relatively obscure American diplomat-wrote the 'long telegram' and the 'X' article.
