The recent crisis of liberalism urges us to revisit the last 50 years of world politics. The era we have all been living through is closing out, democracy is turning on its axis once again. The winner of the Leverhulme Prize in 2012 dissects the journey of western democracy in the last 50 years and asks disturbing questions about its future safety - ideas outlined in his latest book Simon is Associate Professor in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London and his writing can be found in all major newspapers, and the London Review of Books.
