Simon Reid-Henry

Empire of Democracy

County Buildings
Sun 29 Sep

Simon Reid-Henry’s acclaimed history of the West begins at the height of the Cold War, as a new political and economic order replaced the postwar consensus. It would rip down the Iron Curtain; but arguably it would also lead to the Iraq war, financial crash, Trump, Putin and Brexit. Is democracy itself now under threat? Simon Reid-Henry is Associate Professor at Queen Mary University of London and Senior Researcher at the Peace Research Institute, Oslo. [S] [208]
