4. WAR: HOW CONFLICT SHAPED US

Smith & Williamson Tent, Wed 23rd June 17:30 - 18:30 (60 mins)

Is peace an aberration? Bestselling author, Professor Margaret MacMillan, offers a provocative view of war as an essential component of humanity. War has shaped humanity’s history, its social and political institutions, its values and ideas. Drawing on lessons from wars throughout the past, she will reveal the many faces of war—the way it has determined our past, our future, our views of the world, and our very conception of ourselves.
