|How on earth did we get where we are? The chaos of Brexit. Trump. Runaway climate change. The Middle East in flames. A neo-fascist party in the German parliament. Russia using chemical weapons abroad. And China and America squaring up for a mighty trade battle which has the potential to shake the entire global economy. After forty years of travelling the world and speaking to many of the main players from Clinton to Putin, from Milosevic to Boris Johnson, Misha Glenny is in a unique position to explain what has been going wrong over the past three decades and how we might get out of the mess. If you’ve ever wondered why odd things happen in the world, Misha offers an eye-opening talk that will always be surprising and illuminating.
