Aaron David Miller talked about his book, The End of Greatness: Why America Can’t Have (and Doesn’t Want) Another Great President, in which he argues that a preoccupation with greatness causes modern presidents to misjudge their own capacity and that a great president would not be desirable because the opportunity for great leadership would come during a crisis for the country.

This was part of a week-long series with authors who have published books in the past year.

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo previewed the Sunday morning talk shows at the conclusion of the program. close
