Wed, 28 October 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Across the world, nationalism is on the rise, in countries from the US to India. Liberalism is currently fractured and unfashionable but we need to renew our confidence in liberal beliefs of freedom and reason to fight back. To mark the launch of his new book  How to be a Liberal, Ian Dunt sets out the principles and practices of liberalism and shows why it remains our most powerful weapon to shatter the shiny lies of populists.

The perfect book for imperfect times. A phenomenal history from a truly big mind. I cannot praise it liberally enough – David Schneider
