In 2005, Michael Ignatieff, left his life as a writer and professor at Harvard University to enter the political struggle to return home to Canada.In 2008, he was leader of the Liberal Party and lending countries–if the Conservative council weakens–to become Canada, the next Prime MinisterHe never showed up.Today, after a bruise election defeat, Ignatieff is back where he began to, write and teach what he learnedWhat did he have to keep away from this intensive course on the politics of success and failureMakes a lifetime of policy thinking to prepare him for the real thingHow could he bear when his own history as a long-time expatriate became a major political issueAre cynical right to despair about democratic politicsAre idealists entitled to hopeIgnatieff blends reflection and analysis to represent today’s democratic politics as ruthless, unpredictable, ruthless, and hyper-contradictoryRough as it is, Ignatieff argues, democratic politics is a crucible for compromise, and many apparent vices of political life, the incoherence of the false smile, follow from the need to bridge differences in a pluralistic societyA fascinating account of modern politics as it really is, the book is also a celebration of political life in all its wild, exuberant variety.
