Joe Biden is the American president who, unexpectedly, found himself confronted by the most dangerous international crisis of the post-Cold War era. How has he performed, and how well is he equipped, in his eightieth year, for the reordering of international security that has been forced by Vladimir Putin’s challenge? James Naughtie, whose On the Road is an enthralling account of his fifty years of American experiences, brings to bear his deep knowledge of the United States – and Biden and his people – to reflect on a presidency reconfigured by the Ukraine crisis. In his inimitable style he will ask the question to which the world needs an answer: what lies ahead for the American superpower?
