For the past six years, Nina Munk has reported deeply on the Millennium Villages Project started by Jeffery Sachs in 2006 in an attempt to end global poverty. Munk accompanied Sachs on his official trips to Africa and listening in on conversations with heads-of-state, humanitarian organizations, rival economists and development experts. The Idealist is the profound and moving story of what happens when the abstract theories of a brilliant, driven man meet the reality of human life.
