“Queen Vic to Truman and Trump: When the Lion Roared and the Eagle Soared”

Prof. Alfred Eckes, Ohio University Emeritus

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes,” Mark Twain is thought to have said.

There are fascinating parallels between the era of British world leadership, associated

with the Victorian era, and the post-World War II period of American global leadership

from Presidents Truman to Trump.
