History of anti-Americanism discussed in London lecture





Simon Jenkins gave the 15th Annual Douglas W. Bryant Lecture at the British Library on Monday evening.

Speaking before a packed auditorium, the prominent journalist and author chronicled the history of anti-Americanism from the late 19th century to the early twenty-first. The 35-minute lecture spanned Charles Dickens to the shift in global opinion from “sympathy to dismay post-9/11”.

Since 1993 the Eccles Centre has hosted an annual lecture named in memory of Douglas W. Bryant, the President of the American Trust for the British Library, 1990-1994.
