"Britain and America and the Making of the Modern World"
Conversations with History host Harry Kreisler welcomes Walter Russell Mead of the Council on Foreign Relations for a discussion of the Anglo American maritime system—its origins, development, and impact on the world. The conversation touches on the unique synergy between protestant religion and capitalism in the Anglo American world, the consolidation of power in the process of transforming the international system, the importance of culture in international politics, and the need for a dialogue of civilizations in the 21st century.
