In Episode 73 of Ill Literacy, Tim Benson talks with Daniel J. Mahoney, author of “The Statesman as Thinker: Portraits of Greatness, Courage, and Moderation.”

Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Daniel J. Mahoney, professor emeritus at Assumption University and a senior fellow with the RealClear Foundation, to discuss his new book, The Statesman as Thinker: Portraits of Greatness, Courage, and Moderation. They discuss a number of statesmen who struggled to preserve freedom in times of crisis, what qualities make a great statesman and what defines statesmanship, how the study of it has fallen on hard times, and how we can revive it.
