American democracy is in trouble again: divided, broke, its power on the wane. A lecture by David Runciman on American democracy.

In the past, it has always seen off its doubters: every time it has faced a crisis it has found a way to renew itself. Will American democracy rediscover its promise this time? Or is this the crisis too far?

David Runciman’s books, which include Political Hypocrisy and The Politics of Good Intentions, have been nominated for the Orwell and David Watt Prizes. He is a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he teaches politics.
