Presented in conjunction with UCL Institute of the Americas - Last year's Eccles Centre sell out event with Alexander Butterfield, former Deputy Assistant to the President, was wonderfully informative and entertaining. Since that visit journalist Bob Woodward's book The Last of the President’s Men, detailing Butterfield's role in the Watergate scandal has been published, reaching the New York Times bestseller list immediately on publication.

Alexander Butterfield, who oversaw the installation of the now infamous White House taping system, will be with us again, speaking this time about the creation of the book, how he and Woodward came together, how the storyline developed, the surprises in the book, and the post publication interest shown in his papers by the FBI and others. He will again be in conversation with Nixon biographer Professor Iwan Morgan, Commonwealth Fund Professor of American History, UCL.
