Podcast: Listen to Dr Adam Smith's lecture from The Academy 2015
This week’s podcast is taken from the history strand of the recent Institute of Ideas Academy. Dr Adam Smith from University College London argues that the American understanding of the idea of the public, or what Abraham Lincoln termed ‘public sentiment’, can explain both the outbreak and outcome of The American Civil War.
