Description

From Homer's Iliad to Milton's Paradise Lost to the Russian novel and contemporary global literature, major works, read from the angle of the practice of statecraft, offer insights on leadership, substance, and the structure of world affairs reaching beyond the methodologies of international security and policy studies. The meaning and prospects for "The Arab Spring" and the European Union may be more clearly discerned when viewed through this humanities-focused lens.
