Walter Russell Mead, a foreign policy expert of the Council on Foreign Relations, speaks about his new book, God and Gold: Britain, America and the Making of the Modern World.

Mead argues that the key to the predominance of the United States and England has been the individualistic ideology of the prevailing Anglo-American religion. The synergy of this ideology and capitalism propelled Britain and the U.S. to global dominance, and as a result, the two nations were able to create the liberal, democratic system whose economic and social influence continues to grow around the world. Mead goes on to discuss the purpose of Anglo-American power in the post-9/11 world.
