Who is Brent Scowcroft? Mastermind of geopolitical realism? Scourge of neoconservative idealism? 9k=

In The Bookmonger’s latest 10-minute podcast, we try to summarize the life and legacy of the man Bartholomew Sparrow calls The Strategist. That’s the title of his new biography, which is subtitled Brent Scowcroft and the Call of National Security.

We also discuss whether Scowcroft will be remembered as the Kennan or Kissinger of his day, and what strategists of our time can learn from his experience.
