About the speaker:
Fareed Zakaria hosts a weekly international and domestic affairs program Fareed Zakaria GPS for CNN Worldwide and is a columnist for The Washington Post, a contributing editor for The Atlantic, and a bestselling author.

Since its debut in 2008, Fareed Zakaria GPS has become a prominent television forum for global newsmakers and thought leaders. Interviewees have included U.S. President Barack Obama, French President Emmanuel Macron, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Zakaria is the author of three New York Times bestselling books: In Defense of a Liberal Education (2015), a commentary on the importance of a well-rounded education; The Post-American World (1st ed. 2008, 2nd ed. 2011), a discussion of the rise of non-Western powers; and The Future of Freedom (2003), a study of “illiberal democracy” in various countries. His latest book is Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World.

About the Book:
Lenin once said, "There are decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen." This is one of those times when history has sped up.

In Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World, CNN host and author Fareed Zakaria helps readers to understand the nature of a post-pandemic world: the political, social, technological, and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. Written in the form of 10 lessons covering topics from natural and biological risks to an emerging bipolar world order, Zakaria helps readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate effects of COVID-19.

Signed, bookplated copied of Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World are available for sale from The Store at LBJ.
