A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900
with celebrated British historian
Fifty years ago, Sir Winston Churchill published his four-volume History of the English Speaking Peoples. He never finished the history as it ended with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. It is at this point that celebrated British historian Andrew Roberts has stepped in to finish the job.
With the twentieth century marking the rise of the United States as a world power, the decline of the British Empire, and the defeat of Imperial Germany, Axis aggression and Soviet Communism, the English-speaking peoples are clearly the engine driving the past century.
At this luncheon event, Roberts will discuss his book, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900, arguing that what connects Britain and the United States is far greater than what divides them. The book has drawn significant praise from critics, and President Bush mentioned to the press that he was reading the book last fall.
“Instead of emulating other historians who have portrayed the twentieth century as a cesspit of almost uninterrupted warfare, slaughter, and misery, Roberts snubs reproach and defeatism. His tale is of the triumph of light over the forces of darkness,” says The New Criterion.
Andrew Roberts is the author of Napoleon & Wellington, Eminent Churchillians, and Waterloo. He will be joined at this event by Philip Terzian, Literary Editor of the Weekly Standard and Hudson Senior Fellow John O’Sullivan, Editor at Large of National Review and author of The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister: Three Who Changed the World. Irwin Stelzer, Director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Economic Policy and columnist for the Sunday Times (London), will moderate the discussion. Lunch will be served.
