“When you read a non fiction book featuring a long line of dubious characters, hilariously ignorant and incompetent, yet holding vital positions of power all the same–quite like the characters in a political satire like HBO’s VEEP–you know that the man behind it all would make for a fascinating interview. An intellectual, a negotiator, and now, an author–Daniel Levin is indeed a multifaceted man with much more to tell than his writing reveals.”

Daniel Levin is, to say the least, an unusual man.

He’s a consummate insider with impeccable ‘establishment’ credentials; a career spent within think tanks and government institutions, now helping run the Liechtenstein Foundation for State Governance, where he advises on diplomacy, mediation and governance. But despite living in this rarefied world, he’s also a startlingly frank critic of it.

He’s come to the Cambridge Union to talk about his latest book – ‘Nothing But a Circus: Misadventures Among the Powerful’ – in which he recounts his encounters with various members of the ‘elite’ over the course of his career. The clue’s in the title; largely, he seems unimpressed with the people who wield so much influence in modern society.”
