Speaker(s): Professor Andrew Gamble

Recorded on 30 July 2009 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Professor Andrew Gamble made his early reputation writing on British decline, the theory of Marxism and the rise and fall of that long-debated and most controversial political phenomenon in Britain: Margaret Thatcher and 'Thatcherism'. One of the most incisive analysts of British politics with over twenty books - and a raft of prizes to his name - he reflects here on the deeper causes of the current world economic crisis and why the crisis has been especially acute in the Anglo-American world. This public lecture is timed to coincide with the publication of his long-waited new book - The Spectre at the Feast: Capitalist Crisis and the Politics of Recession - and promises to be a memorable one.
