In “The Unquiet American; Richard Holbrooke in the World,’’ co-editors Derek Chollet and Samantha Power, who both worked for Holbrooke, don’t even attempt to hide their admiration and, yes, love for the man. The book is composed of 11 personal essays on Holbrooke’s life from those who knew him best, including journalists, fellow diplomats, and even Holbrooke’s wife, along with 33 pieces about foreign policy from Holbrooke, perhaps the most successful diplomat of the last half century.
