Fulbright 60th Anniversary Lecture in London





One of Britain’s most celebrated historians “revisited” the special relationship on Tuesday evening.

Speaking before a packed auditorium at the British Library, Professor Sir David Cannadine traced Winston Churchill’s evolving view of the Anglo-American relationship.

In what was a nuanced hour-long talk, Cannadine moved from the “romance and rhetoric” to the “reality and realpolitik” in Churchill’s day to those of more recent transatlantic actors.

The event sponsored by the US-UK Fulbright Commission was a timely one given the recent strain in bilateral relations.
