Stephen Holmes is the Walter E. Mayer Professor of Law at New York University. With Ivan Krastev he is the author of “The Light that Failed: a Reckoning.” Jack Goldsmith sat down with Holmes to talk about his new book and much more. The pair discussed the fate of liberalism in the decades following the fall of the Berlin wall, Holmes’ experience studying Eastern European politics, the problems with trying to export liberalism across the globe and the factors that have led to the global rise of illiberal leaders.
