Ian Goldin: Age of the City

Jewish Literary Foundation presents Book Week 24

Speaker Ian Goldin

Former World Bank VP and adviser to Nelson Mandela, Ian Goldin explores why the city is where the battles of inequality, social division, pandemics and climate change must be faced.


From centres of antiquity like Athens or Rome to modern metropolises like New York or Shanghai, cities throughout history have been the epicentres of our greatest achievements.

Now, for the first time, more than half of humanity lives in cities, which are growing at a rate never seen before. The visionary Oxford professor Ian Goldin follows Rescue: From Global Crisis to a Better World with Age of the City: Why our Future will be Won or Lost Together.
