CCA I: Winston S. Churchill
Winston S. Churchill was the greatest statesman of the 20th century, and one of the greatest in all history. This year marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of his becoming prime minister at the outset of the Second World War, and the fiftieth anniversary of his death. This first CCA of the 2015-2016 academic year will consider Churchill’s thought and achievements, and the lessons that may be drawn from his example today.
