[Free webinar] Marianne Thamm and award-winning journalist Nadav Eyal discuss the root of revolt and reveal that the current uprisings are no passing phenomenon (25 Mar)
More about the book!
From Brexit and Grexit to neo-Nazis in Germany, Syrian families making their way to refuge through Greece and the rise, and fall, of Donald Trump, revolt is all around us.
In his latest book, award-winning journalist Nadav Eyal illustrates how modern globalisation is unsustainable and that the current uprisings are no passing phenomenon. Revolt is the new status quo.
Daily Maverick Associate Editor Marianne Thamm will be in conversation with Nadav Eyal as they explore his view that the collapse of the current world order is not so much about the imbalance between technological advances and social progress as it is about a passion to upend and destroy power structures that have become hollow, corrupt, or simply unresponsive to urgent needs.
