Rossides Presents Kissinger Book in New York May 22

NEW YORK – Eugene T. Rossides will present his new book, Kissinger & Cyprus:  A Study in Lawlessness on Thursday, May 22 from 6–8 PM at Cyprus House, 13 East 40th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

The event will include a book signing and is being held under the auspices of the Consulate of the Republic of Cyprus, International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA), AHEPA, the American Hellenic Institute, the Cyprus Federation of America, the Cyprus Children’s Fund, the Cyprus – U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC) and the Cyprus Trade Center.

This book explores four themes. The first is Kissinger’s illegal actions and responsibility for the Cyprus tragedy of 1974 and its aftermath.

The second is Cyprus’s importance as a strategic, economic, and political asset to Europe and the United States.

The third is Turkey’s actions as a rogue state, its violations of US and international laws, its history of unreliability as an ally and its moves toward Islamic fundamentalism.

The fourth is the vital importance to the United States of absolute allegiance to the rule of law. The

concluding chapter discusses the need for the US to redress the situation in Cyprus by pressuring Turkey to withdraw its troops and settlers from Cyprus.

Rossides served as Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury from 1969 to 1973 in the first term of the Nixon Administration. Henry Kissinger was National Security Adviser during this time.

“Rossides leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind that Kissinger’s policies traded America’s legal and

moral position for a short-term political gain. Even the gain, he notes, was questionable,” wrote Prof. Louis Galambos, Johns Hopkins University, editor of The Papers of Dwight David Eisenhower.

There will also be a cheese reception. Limited Seating. RSVP: Sophia at [email protected] or
