Friday Roundtable: Three voices on international affairs

MPR News host Kerri Miller asked three experts about the foreign policy challenges the next president will confront and how the U.S. vision of the future compares to that of other world powers.

The roundtable featured John Radsan, law professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law and a former assistant general counsel at the CIA; Barbara Frey, director of the Human Rights Program at the University of Minnesota; and Ahmed Samatar, James Wallace Professor of International Studies at Macalester College.

Each week, Kerri Miller asks the roundtable guests what they are reading. Here is what they chose:

Samatar: "How Much is Enough?: Money and the Good Life" by Robert Skidelsky and Edward Skidelsky

Frey: "Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention" by Séverine Autesserre

Radsan: "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte and "Black Flags: The Rise of ISIS" by Joby Warrick
