Black's History Week


Hail to the Chief (Part VI)

Ep. 9

In this week's Black's History Week podcast, Professor Jeremy Black, author of Altered States, talks to The Critic's political editor, Graham Stewart, about how posterity - or at any rate some historians - will treat the presidency of Donald Trump. Revolutionary? Visionary? Perpetuator of a long-established isolationist tradition or the architect of a realist foreign policy for the 21st century? An aberration? Or a symptom of deeper and unresolved divisions in American society that consensus politics did not - and may not - overcome?
