Nuclear Arms and Human Rights

Professor Niall Ferguson, Professor Michael Cox (Chair)
1 March 2011, 6:30pm, Old Theatre


The decisive breakthroughs that ultimately shattered the Soviet Union occurred into seemingly unrelated fields — nuclear arms control and human rights. What were the links between these? And which mattered more? Was the collapse of Communism in Europe and Central Asia a reflection of imperial overstretch or the result of a revolution from within inspired by classical liberal aspirations for greater civil and political freedom?

This event celebrates the publication of Professor Ferguson's new book 'Civilization: The West and the Rest'.
