Event description

Description

Sam Leith in conversation with Frank Dikötter about his new book on dictators past and present.

How does a cult of personality begin – and how does it sustain itself? How do tyrants create the illusion of popular support – and what do they fear most?

Frank Dikötter, author of Mao’s Great Famine, is in conversation with The Spectator’s literary editor, Sam Leith. This event will be recorded and released as a special edition of Sam Leith's Spectator Books podcast.

Copies of How to be a Dictator can be purchased on the night.

Tickets are limited to 75 places so book now to avoid disappointment, and please ensure you have your Spectator subscriber number when making your booking.
