Pulitzer Prize winner and former US Ambassador to the UN
Samantha Power is widely known as the moral voice of her generation. A relentless advocate for promoting human rights, she has been heralded by President Barack Obama as one of America’s “foremost thinkers on foreign policy” as well as one of Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People.’
In her new book, The Education of an Idealist, she provides a unique perspective on government, taking us from the streets of war-torn Bosnia to the Situation Room and out into the world of high-stakes diplomacy. Her writing illuminates the messy and complex worlds of politics and geopolitics while laying bare the searing battles and defining moments of her life (including what it’s like to juggle the demands of a 24/7 national security job with raising two young children).
