The Zeitgeist Series: The Corruption of American Leadership description

As George W Bush’s speechwriter, David Frum had a front row seat to some of this century’s most tumultuous events, including 9/11 and the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan. One of America’s leading conservative thinkers, in his new book Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic, Frum offers a frightening but nuanced analysis of Trump’s unprecedented presidency, and a sober account of his fears for American democracy.

David Frum is in conversation with the Hon Bob Carr.

 

David Frum is a former speechwriter for George W Bush and the author of nine books, most recently TRUMPOCRACY: The Corruption of the American Republic.

Chair: Bob Carr is best known for his political service but more recently enjoys a distinguished second career as an author and academic and is currently the Director of the Australia–China Relations Institute at UTS.
