In 1941 the publisher Henry Luce announced the beginning of an American century and called upon Americans to take up the burden of global leadership. Has the United States fulfilled its historic mission? Why has the idea of an American century exercised such fascination for writers? And after 2000, should we now be thinking of another American century?

Alan Brinkley is professor of history at Columbia University.

The next event in the series takes place on Tuesday 14 February - The Global Cold War: third world interventions and the making of our times.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
