Professor Iwan Morgan examines the legacy of a truly era-defining president – Ronald Reagan. Join him the day after the most polarising presidential election for generations: Clinton v Trump.
Reagan restored America’s self-confidence in the 1980s by governing as a pragmatic conservative, pursuing a foreign policy of peace through strength and proffering an optimistic vision that America’s best days lay in the future not the past.
Whatever your views on 2016‘s presidential candidates, Professor Morgan’s lecture will provide fascinating insight and historical context.
