Stuart Eizenstat known throughout the Jewish world for his negotiations in the Clinton administration and beyond on behalf of Holocaust Survivors, was at Jimmy Carter’s side from his political rise through Georgia through four years in the White House, where he served as chief domestic policy advisor and official backchannel to Israel for the Middle East peace process.
His new book, President Carter: The White House Years, stands as the definitive account of Carter’s presidency, and has been widely acclaimed as “page-turning … From Stuart Eizenstat, you can learn a great deal―about Carter, sure, but also about the presidency at large,” (The National Review) and “Thoughtful, measured and compelling,” (The New York Times). Joined by President Jimmy Carter via Skype, Stuart Eizenstat talks with David Rubenstein, co-founder of the Carlyle Group and one of America’s greatest philanthropists, who served as deputy assistant to the President for domestic policy in the Carter administration, about the impact of Carter’s legacy. Join them for a fascinating, fair minded and insightful look at this widely misunderstood presidency.
