THE WORLD: A FAMILY HISTORY
27 Apr 2023
SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE
The distinguished historian Simon Sebag Montefiore introduces us to his widest-ranging and most ambitious book yet: the story of humanity, told through the families that shaped the world. From the earliest caves to modern drones, his dazzling epic spans all eras and all continents. Profiling some of the world’s great dynasties, from Alexander the Great to the Medicis, Ghandis, Churchills and Assads, he steers us through a fascinating interconnected world via palace intrigues, love affairs and family lives.
Simon will be interviewed by Gerry Foley.
