The Presidents: 250 Years of American Political Leadership
American politics remains deeply divided but in so many ways it always had been. Anglo-American relations were also fraught for much of the first 150 years of the new American Republic. Only since the 1940s has the supposed ‘special relationship’ existed. Our discussion will explain why slavery and race have transcended the term of office of every President. Broadcaster Iain Dale leads his expert line up, consisting of former US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Colleen Graffy; former BBC North American Editor Justin Webb; and Ambassador to the US (1997- 2003) Sir Christopher Meyer.
