A renowned Harvard professor of history and economics and an award-winning author, Niall Ferguson starts this year's Bucknell Forum series with his keynote presentation, "Is the United States an Empire? Should It Be?" His talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book-signing. The event is free and open to the public.
In addition to authoring several award-winning books, including The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World (2008) and Colossus: The Rise and Fall of the American Empire (2004), Ferguson has appeared regularly on radio and television, and is known as an animated and provocative speaker.
