This event is part of the Cambridge Literary Festival.

The British Academy Book Prize is awarded annually for a non-fiction book that has made an outstanding contribution to global cultural understanding for a wider public audience. 

Timothy Garton Ash, former Book Prize winner, tells the incredible story of how, in the 21st century, Europe emerged from years of war with a hopeful roadmap towards a more liberated continent and offers a necessary clear-eyed account of how so much went wrong, from the 2008 financial crisis and Brexit, to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Speaker: Timothy Garton Ash, author, Professor of European Studies at University of Oxford, Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow at St Antony’s College, Oxford, and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University
