VIDEO: The Imperial Presidency & American Foreign Policy

EVENT VIDEO: On Tuesday 9 October 2012, ahead of the final days of the US presidential election, the AIIA NSW hosted distinguished Australian academic, Neville Meaney, to explore the role of the American president in an era in which many Americans define their country as the world’s greatest power while others see it in decline.

Dr Neville Meaney is associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Sydney. He has a long-standing research interest in international history, with a particular focus on the way in which ideology, culture and geopolitics have interacted to shape historical events and processes. He has published widely in the field and his most recent work is Towards a New Vision: Australia and Japan Across Time (2007). He is also a fellow of the Australian Institute of International Affairs.
