Recorded on 26 January 2016 at Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
This is the new London: an immigrant city. Over one-third of Londoners were born abroad, with half arriving since the millennium. This has utterly transformed the capital. Ben Judah, foreign correspondent, turns his reporter’s eye to home to expose the fossilized myths of our capital city.
Ben Judah (@b_judah) was born in London. He has travelled widely in Russia, Central Asia and the Levant. His writing has featured widely, including the New York Times, the Evening Standard, the Financial Times and Standpoint. His first book, Fragile Empire, was published by Yale University Press in 2013. His new book is entitled, This is London: Life and Death in the World City.
