Featuring Professor Claudio Véliz
Author of The New World of the Gothic Fox: Culture and Economy in English and Spanish America
Wednesday, October 11, 2006
The common law, individual liberty, and representative constitutional government are proven institutions and values that, along with language, link the United States, Britain, India, Australia, Canada, the West Indies, Ireland, and New Zealand. The nations of the English-speaking world are also connected in their quiet cooperation on such diverse matters as the war on terror, tsunami relief, and U.N. peacekeeping operations.
The Anglosphere Institute (www.anglosphereinstitute.org) dedicates itself to exploring “the emerging branch of civilization at the core of which are the nations of the English-speaking world.” It cordially invites you to its inaugural lecture, delivered by Claudio Véliz, distinguished historian, professor emeritus at Boston University, and author of The New World of the Gothic Fox: Culture and Economy in English and Spanish America (University of California Press)—a work praised as “erudite” by the Economist and “welcomed” by the New York Review of Books. The Anglosphere Institute thanks the Hudson Institute for their kind hospitality.
