This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 2nd Nov 2016
Author Simon Ings discusses the thrilling history of Soviet Science. The Soviet Union’s sciences were the largest and best funded in history – and were at once the glory and the laughing stock of the intellectual world.
From countless sources and with an eye to world events, Simon will describe what happened when, early in the twentieth century, a handful of impoverished and underemployed graduates, professors and entrepreneurs, collectors and charlatans, bound themselves to a weak and failing government to create a world superpower.
Copies of Stalin and the Scientists will be on sale at the event.
