Mr. Larres talked about his book Churchill’s Cold War: The Politics of Personal Diplomacy, published by Yale University Press. During the talk, he explained how Churchill’s personal diplomatic meeting with foreign leaders helped maintain Britain’s status as a world power on par with the rising Soviet Union and the United States. The author asserted that Churchill’s preference for summits and his relationships with U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and other world leaders created the perception that England was still a strong empire despite the fact that the past two world wars had greatly contributed to his country’s decline. After the presentation, Mr. Larres responded to questions from members of the audience. close
