You are cordially invited to a lecture, sponsored by the Anglosphere Institute, on the common law, individual liberty and constitutional government, entitled “The Optional Descent of the English Speaking World”. The lecturer will be Professor Claudio Véliz, author of The New World of the Gothic Fox: Culture and Economy in English and Spanish America.
I have read Prof. Veliz’s book, and it is very good. Jim Bennett considers it one of the principal works in Anglospheric thought. A sample of Prof. Veliz’s writing is this article comparing the development of Argentina and Australia, and this one regarding the abuse of history for ideological purposes. (See also this recent post from the Conservative History blog which references Prof. Veliz.)
The lecture will be Wednesday, October 11, 2006, 5:30-7:00 PM at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC, 1015 15th Street, N.W., 6th Floor.
