Event description

Description

Stanfords welcomes Tim Marshall as he talks about his new book Divided.

Informed by 30 years commenting on world affairs, Tim Marshall’s illuminating explanations of global politics made Prisoners of Geography an international bestseller. In Divided he brings that wealth of experience and insight to explain what has divided us, past and present, showing how it informs much of what is going on in the world today.

Nationalism and identity politics are on the rise once more. Thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected since the turn of the century, redefining our political landscape. In Europe the divisions of the past decade threaten not only European unity, but in some countries liberal democracy itself. In China, the Party’s need to contain the divisions wrought by capitalism will define the nation’s future. In the USA the rationale for the Mexican border wall taps into the fear that the USA will no longer be a white majority country.

In chapters covering China; the USA; the UK; Europe; the Middle East; Israel; Africa; and the Indian subcontinent, Marshall examines the divisions caused by wealth, race, religion and politics.


Tickets £4 (redeemable against the cost of Divided by Tim Marshall) includes a glass of wine/ soft drink.
