Sarah Chayes is the author of the prize-winning book Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security. Her most recent book is On Corruption in America.
Chayes is also a former senior associate in the Democracy and Rule of Law Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. She has also served at the topmost levels of the U.S. military, including as special adviser to two commanders of the international forces in Kabul and then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen.
Sarah Chayes warns that the United States is facing overlapping crises, both at home and globally, which may fundamentally change the lives of the American people. She also explains how the country’s democracy is threatened by right-wing radicalization and the enduring power of the corporatocracy over both the Democrats and Republicans.
