Please join Steve Clemons and Brian Till in a discussion about Till's new book, Conversations with Power, a series of interviews with former leaders from around the world. Clinton thinks we might lose on climate change; Ehud Barak laments that his military career left him ill-prepared for politics and statesmanship, in which "human weaknesses, human needs" matter a great deal; and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, of Brazil, recalls the words of a former boss at the UN: "He said, 'Fernando, it's better not to know those who command the world.'" And all but two confirm the thesis Till set out to consider: Did the post-Cold War generation fall short on nearly all the challenges assigned by history - the Soviet demise, the threat of climate change, maintaining balance amid the liberalization of the global economy. Come listen to a discussion of the regrets, mistakes, and lessons on leadership offered by a dozen of the world's most interesting former heads of state.
