We are more than a country separated by a common language. James Naughtie, special correspondent for BBC News and one of the country’s best-known broadcaster, has been travelling in America since the 1970s – witnessing many of the important events that have shaped the country as it is today – and reports back in his latest book on his experiences, the places and people he has encountered, and the changes he has seen.
Naughtie presented Today on Radio 4 for 21 years, and has reported for the BBC from around the world for more than three decades. Alongside his journalism he has written and produced many documentaries on music and books, and presented concerts from across Europe for radio and television. On Radio 4, he has hosted every edition of Bookclub since it began in 1998.
