Eventbrite - Author Talk - Don Watson on "QE63 Enemy Within American Politics in the Time of Trump

Don Watson is no stranger to American politics and the new Quarterly Essay gives the Watson treatment to the spectacle we are all watching unfold in the current US election.

In this essay Watson takes us into the heart of the US, tracing America's recent past, he puts Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders in a larger frame.  He considers the irresistible pull - for Americans - of American exceptionalism, and asks whether this creed is reaching its limit.  He explores alternative paths the US could have taken, and asks where its present course might lead Australia as a dutiful ally.
