Lunchtime Lecture: How Crises Spark New Political Ideas

Hay Festival 2022, 

The Cambridge politics professor, author of Confronting Leviathan: A History of Ideas, shows how crises – revolutions, wars, depressions, pandemics – have generated new ways of political thinking and how the history of ideas can help make sense of what’s happening today.
