Please join us on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at 3pm ET for a talk with Susan Ronald about her new book, THE AMBASSADOR: Joseph P. Kennedy at the Court of St. James's 1938-1940. Ms. Ronald gained access to many newly available sources and reveals the truth about Joseph P. Kennedy's tenure as Ambassador to Great Britain on the eve of World War II. 

THE AMBASSADOR confirms in impressive detail what has long been believed by many: that Joseph P. Kennedy was a Fascist sympathizer and an anti-Semite whose only loyalty was to his family's advancement.

The book reveals a darker side of the Kennedy patriarch. Ronald reveals the ambitions of the Kennedy dynasty during this period abroad, as they sought to enter the world of high society London and establish themselves as America’s first family.
