The Regulator Bookshop welcomes Bruce Jentleson, Duke University Professor of Public Policy and Political Science, for a reading and signing of his new book, The Peacemakers: Leadership Lessons from Twentieth-Century Statesmanship. Jentleson showcases a wide range of national leaders as individuals and discusses why and how they made the choices they did, their intended (and unintended) outcomes, and what lessons we can learn in light of our new twenty-first century global agenda.
“Peace has many facets and many types of leaders. Bruce W. Jentleson provides a fascinating selection of examples of who, why, how and what they have done. It is a very readable account that brings new insights to a crucial subject.” -- Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard professor and author of Presidential Leadership and the Creation of the American Era
