America Right or Wrong: An Anatomy of American Nationalism (new edition) by Anatol Lieven (Oxford University Press)
In America Right or Wrong, Anatol Lieven explores among other things the radicalization of the Republican Party in recent decades, and the reasons for this. He argues that while President Obama has governed in effect as a moderate conservative of a kind which (race aside) would have been completely acceptable to President Eisenhower in the 1950s, dominant sections of the Republican Party have shifted dramatically further to the right than Eisenhower, Nixon or even Reagan.
Professor Anatol Lieven is chair of international relations in the War Studies Department of King’s College London, and a senior fellow of the New America Foundation in Washington DC. Anatol has worked as a senior fellow of the Carnegie Endowment in Washington and the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London. He writes a monthly column for the Financial Times, and is published frequently in other newspapers and journals. He is a member of the editorial board of the National Interest and a convenor of the Russia and Eurasia Security Research Group
The event is hosted in association with Oxford University Press.
