George Kenney: "Podcast interview re lying in international politics w/ Dr. John J. Mearsheimer" @ Electric Politics

Dear Michael,

A slight switch in the announced schedule, today my guest is John J. Mearsheimer, talking about his latest book, Why Leaders Lie: The Truth About Lying in International Politics (Oxford, 2011). It's a short book at 102 pages, but chock full of interesting and provocative observations. Highly recommended. Listeners may note that John is more cautious than I am, but he should be. Hopefully we will pick up questions regarding the well-being of democracy in America at a later time -- I'm guessing we actually see things in a very similar way.

As always, if you enjoy the podcast please don't hesitate to forward the link.

Thanks for listening!
