    The Good American: The Epic Life of Bob Gersony, the U.S. Government’s Greatest Humanitarian (Hardcover) by Robert D. Kaplan (on pre-order)

    Amazon Prime: “From the New York Times bestselling author of The Revenge of Geography comes a ‘sweeping yet intimate story of the most influential humanitarian you’ve never heard of—Bob Gersony–who spent four decades in crisis zones around the world.’ In a work that exhibits Kaplan’s signature talent for combining travel and geography with sharp political analysis, The Good American tells Gersony’s powerful life story. In so doing, it brings the reader to vibrant settings around the world, revealing one man’s immense impact on U.S. foreign policy in a pivotal period of American history. This is a revelatory, essential book for the times we now live in, when diplomacy, hard facts, and humanitarian concerns are too often being left behind. Set during the State Department’s golden age—the late Cold War and post–Cold War—this is a story about the loneliness, sweat, and tears and the genuine courage that characterized Gersony’s work in far-flung places. It is also a celebration of ground-level reporting: a page-turning demonstration, by one of our finest geopolitical thinkers, of how getting an up-close, worm’s-eye view of crises and applying sound reason can elicit world-changing results.

    The book will be available October 6, 2020 and can be pre-ordered now at Amazon Prime.
