Talk: 'The Lost World of American Conservatism'
Wednesday, 28 November 2012 from 17:30 to 19:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
UCL - Institute of the Americas is pleased to host this talk by Dr Robin Archer (LSE). This talk suggests that, contrary to conventional wisdom, there was an important strand of European-style conservatism in the United States. While labour leaders made regular use of the language of liberty, business elites and their political and military allies repeatedly reached for the language of order versus chaos.
