About the Book: Anne-Marie Slaughter, Ph.D.’s new book, Renewal: From Crisis to Transformation in Our Lives, Work, and Politics, details the issues plaguing our time, including systemic racism, mass unemployment, growing economic inequality, and the livability of our planet. But the book also offers Prof. Slaughter’s candid and deeply personal account of crisis and change, and she explores a new understanding of how we as individuals, organizations, and nations can look at our current situation, reflect and respond, facing the past and embracing a new future.
Weaving together personal stories with insights from the latest research in the social sciences, Renewal provides lessons for anyone willing to see themselves with new eyes and embrace radical honesty, risk, resilience, interdependence, grace, and vision. As a scholar, leader, entrepreneur, public commentator, feminist, and foreign policy expert, Prof. Slaughter presents ways to confront and accept criticism, support change, attempt and evaluate risk, explore leadership, and share power.
