Ben Rhodes, a former top adviser to Barack Obama, joins Prospect's Steve Bloomfield

By Prospect Team  

This week Ben Rhodes speaks to Steve Bloomfield. Rhodes was formerly at the centre of the Obama administration: he started as a speechwriter but quickly became one of Obama’s closest advisors on foreign policy. He was there for some of the most important geopolitical events in recent history.

His new book is called The World As It Is: Inside the Obama White House. Bloomfield, Prospect’s Deputy Editor, reviews it here.
