Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Ricks, one of America's foremost journalists and authors, has a new book called "First Principles: What America's Founders Learned from the Greeks and Romans and How That Shaped Our Country" and it could not be more timely. It challenges many assumptions about the ideas leading to America's foundings and sheds light on many of the problems we are grappling with today. Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law Center, Ed Luce of the Financial Times, and host David Rothkopf discuss with Ricks what led him to write the book and some of its surprising, stirring and most-thought provoking revelations. Join us.
