The men and women who created today's liberal, democratic, globalised world order may now have left public office, but they have not retired. So, what are they doing, and how does it affect the rest of us? In The Ex Men, Giles Edwards sets out to answer that question, uncovering the many ways in which former Presidents and Prime Ministers continue to affect global public life.From running international organisations to monitoring elections, advising companies and charities and giving hundred-thousand-dollar speeches, Giles takes us inside this often-hidden world. He has interviewed more than twenty former leaders, from Presidents overthrown in coups to winners of Nobel Prizes. He has spent time at their clubs and resorts, spoken to the people who work with them, and to the organisations and individuals who hire them.
