Cover to Cover with Philip Stephens: Britain Alone

09/08/2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The World Affairs Councils of America’s next Cover to Cover webinar features Philip Stephens, Director of the Editorial Board and Chief Political Commentator at Financial TimesBritain Alone: From Suez to Brexit is a story of a nation’s attempt to reconcile its past and present in a confident national identity. It is a story of inflated ambition rubbing up against its diminished circumstance, of a glorious past and an unforgiving present, and ultimately of Britain’s effort over many decades to come to terms with its place as an important, but second rank power.
