On the occasion of the US presidential election on November 8, 2016, the talk between Heinz Gärtner (oiip, University of Vienna) and Walter Russell Mead (Bard College, New York) wanted to revisit the role of US presidents in American history and foreign policy. In order to that, they did not focus on the upcoming presidential elections, but on the concepts of US presidents and their foreign policy, which Walter Russell Mead explains in his most influential book "Special Providence: American Foreign Policy and How it Changed the World" that won the Lionel Gelber Award for the best book in English on International Relations in 2002.
