"Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome Harvard University professor Michael Ignatieff for a discussion of his book, Fire and Ashes: Success and Failure in Politics.
In 2005 Michael Ignatieff left his life as a writer and professor at Harvard University to enter the combative world of politics back home in Canada. By 2008, he was leader of the country's Liberal Party and poised'should the governing Conservatives falter'to become Canada's next Prime Minister. It never happened. Today, after a bruising electoral defeat, Ignatieff is back where he started, writing and teaching what he learned."
