Episode Summary

EDIT
Uncommon Knowledge: Charles Hill
AIRED:
During a long and distinguished career in the State Department, Charles Hill served as an adviser to Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Shultz. From 1992 to 1996 Ambassador Hill served as special consultant on policy to the secretary-general of the United Nations, Boutros Boutros-Ghali. Now a fellow at the Hoover Institution, Ambassador Hill is also the diplomat-in-residence at Yale, where he teaches a yearlong seminar, Studies in Grand Strategy. Ambassador Hill is the author of a number of books, the most recent of which is Grand Strategies: Literature, Statecraft, and World Order.Hill explains why statecraft cannot be practiced in the absence of literary insight. "The international world of states and their modern system is a literary realm ... where the greatest issues of the human condition are played out." From theory to practice, Hill bridges the gap between Thucydides and Obama to consider the practice of grand strategies in U.S. foreign policy today.moreless
