Kissinger and Cyprus: A Study in Lawlessness:
Featuring Mr. Gene Rossides, Former Asst. Secretary of the U.S. Treasury

The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) is pleased to announce its newest publication, Kissinger & Cyprus: A Study in Lawlessness by Gene Rossides.

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 theme is Turkey's actions as a rogue state, its violations of United States and international laws, its history of unreliability as an ally and its moves towards Islamic fundamentalism. The fourth theme is the vital importance to the United States of absolute allegiance to the rule of law. The concluding chapter discusses the need for the United States to redress the situation in Cyprus by pressuring Turkey to withdraw its troops and settlers from Cyprus.

Gene Rossides served as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury from 1969 to 1973, during the first term of the Nixon Administration. Henry Kissinger was National Security Adviser during this time. Rossides supervised the U.S. Customs Service, Secret Service, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. He served as the U.S. representative to INTERPOL. From 1958 to 1961, he served in the Eisenhower Administration and is a founding director of the Eisenhower Institute. He graduated from Columbia College and Columbia Law School.
