Looks like an outstanding list.

It certainly does. I am skeptical of any list published by The Economist, but it does look good.

The Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger and a Forgotten Genocide. By Gary Bass. Knopf; 499 pages; $30.

A detailed assessment of the part America played in the split between Pakistan and Bangladesh. Gary Bass, who once wrote for The Economist, describes in detail how Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon ignored the advice of their diplomats on the ground, and casts fresh light on a shameful moment in American foreign policy.

Sounds like a tendentious view from left field. Nixon's supporters give him kudos for saving Pakistan by pressuring India when it appeared that India might swallow Pakistan up during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War. Nowadays, saving Pakistan doesn't seem to have been such a great deed.
