What does it mean to be a statesman and who in the past can we look to for those examples? Daniel J. Mahoney, the author of “The Statesman As Thinker,” joins the podcast to discuss why America needs more statesmen rather than politicians, and what it takes to become a statesman.

In the same vain as Plutarch's Lives, Mahoney has assembled a number of historical figures who were or became great statesmen during times of crises. We go all the way back to the end of the 18th century and venture up to the modern age. These political figures are from various regions of the world, enduring varying circumstances that made them rise to the top.
