There has long been has been an overlap between the history of LSE and the USA, often personified in well-known individuals like JFK and Rockefeller. In this episode of podcast series The Ballpark, LSE’s United States Centre uncovers the real relationship between Americans, London and LSE.


Professor Michael Cox, Director of LSE IDEAS, believes LSE has helped shape the United States, and in turn Americans have helped define LSE, since its foundation in 1895. In this lecture at LSE on 16 November 2016, The Yanks Are Coming! LSE in the American Century, Professor Cox explained what has been a very “special relationship”.
