Fabulous Fanny Cradock:TV´s Outrageous Queen of Cuisine Clive Ellis
Professor Charles Kupchan and TV host and writer Ruby Wax on this edition of Fresh Air. Charles Kupchan´s new book, ´´The End of the American Era: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Geopolitics of the Twenty-First Century, Kupchan argues that the era of American dominance may be coming to an end; this demise will not be brought on by the Islamic world or China but from an integrated Europe. He says that as Europe´s political and strategic goals continue to divert from those of the US, Europe will rise as a new rival. Kupchan served on the National Security Council during the first Clinton administration. He is a professor of international relations at Georgetown University and senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. Ruby Wax was born and raised outside Chicago. She moved to England during her 20s, and found success as a performer, writer, and TV personality. Wax scripted the British TV comedy Absolutely Fabulous and has had many other hit TV series on the BBC. Her new memoir is called How Do You Want Me? (Broadcast Date: November 12, 2002) 1.
