Launch event at Five Leaves Bookshop, Nottingham
This is a history of hominids, hunters and herders; of emperors and slaves; of patriarchs and women; of rich and poor; of dictators and revolutionaries. From the ancient empires of Persia and Rome to the Russian Revolution, the Vietnam War, and the 2008 Crash, this is a history of greed and violence, but also of solidarity and resistance.
Many times in the past, a different society became an absolute necessity. Humans have always struggled to create a better life. This history proves that we, the many, have the power to change the world.
Neil Faulkner is a historian and archaeologist. He is the author of numerous books, including A Radical History of the World (Pluto, 2018), A People’s History of the Russian Revolution (Pluto, 2017) and Lawrence of Arabia’s War (Yale, 2016). This will be Neil’s third talk at the bookshop. There will be plenty time for discussion.
Admission: £3, including refreshments. Please let us know you are coming on [email protected]
