Useful Enemies: Islam and The Ottoman Empire in Western Political Thought, 1450–1750

Hay Festival 2019, 

From the fall of Constantinople in 1453 until the 18th century, many Western European writers viewed the Ottoman Empire with almost obsessive interest. Typically, they reacted to it with fear and distrust; and such feelings were reinforced by the deep hostility of Western Christendom towards Islam. Yet there was also much curiosity about the social and political system on which the huge power of the sultans was based. In the 16th century, especially, when Ottoman territorial expansion was rapid and Ottoman institutions seemed particularly robust, there was even open admiration. Chaired by Tom Clark of Prospect magazine.

Fictions: The Wall

Hay Festival 2019, 

The new book by the author of Capital is a dystopian thriller set in a near-future Britain that invites comparison with Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Orwell’s 1984. Kavanagh begins his life patrolling the Wall. If he’s lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has two years of this, 729 more nights. But somewhere, in the dark cave of his mind, he thinks: wouldn’t it be interesting if something did happen, if they came, if you had to fight for your life?
