Event Details

Luath Press is pleased to invite you to the launch of Tom Nairn: Old Nations, Auld Enemies, New Times  a selection of essays edited by Jamie Maxwell and Pete Ramand with a foreword by Anthony Barnett. 

For the last fifty years Tom Nairn has been one of Britain’s most consistently provocative and influential voices. No other writer has left so deep an impression on mainstream debates about Scotland, Britain and nationalism. No other writer has so thoroughly interrogated the United Kingdom’s post-war crisis and decline.

Old Nations, Auld Enemies, New Times brings together, for the first time, the full span of Nairn’s work, from his ground-breaking analysis of the British state in the 1960s and ‘70s to his more recent examinations of globalisation, the English question and Scotland’s independence referendum. 

The event will be chaired by editors Jamie Maxwell and Pete Ramand. Speakers will include the man himself Tom Nairn, Anthony Barnett, Isobel Lindsay and Tariq Ali followed by time for Q&A, comments and discussion.
