Kathleen Burk is the Professor Emerita
of Modern and Contemporary History at University College London. A specialist in Anglo-American relations and
on finance and foreign policy, she has published a number of books on these and
other subjects in international history; she is currently writing a book on the interactions of the British and
American empires from 1783 to the present. A regular commentator on contemporary politics and foreign affairs for
radio and television, she has also appeared regularly on programmes dealing with subjects
from the Pilgrim Fathers to P.G. Wodehouse. From 2003 to 2006 she was the Gresham Professor of Rhetoric in the City
of London, which required her to give an number of public lectures each year on
a wide range of topics, which included the Hundred Years’ War, the Anglo-Russian
Great Game in Central Asia, and the American War for Independence. She has, for some years, had a secondary
career in wine, both as a wine writer (she has published a book on wine and
writes regular articles), and as an international judge.
The image above shows the cover of her latest book, Old World, New World: The Story of Britain and America, which was awarded the Henry Adams Prize in the US.
