The Extreme Centre: Tariq Ali in conversation with Danny Dorling

Tuesday 31st March 2015 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

We welcome prolific writer, journalist and filmmaker Tariq Ali to Foyles for another evening of provocative debate courtesy of Verso Books.

Author of more than twenty books, as a historian, novelist and social commentator, Ali is one of our most committed polemicists. In his latest book, The Extreme Centre, the Guardian and London Review of Books contributor and editor at the New Left Review argues that Westminster is in the grip of an extreme centre, a trilateral monolith in which politics has become a contest to see who can best serve the needs of the market, whilst unstable populist parties occupy the margins.

Meanwhile, he suggests, the gap between the haves and the have-nots has turned into a chasm. The rich have found new ways of protecting their wealth, whilst everyone else suffers the penalties of austerity. With inequality continuing to grow and our political elite failing to redress the balance, Ali offers up this warning against the status quo and, in scouring the immediate and not-so-recent political past, posits potential alternative futures to get us back on track.

Chairing the event is Danny Dorling, author of Inequality and the 1%.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
