Michael Ignatieff: Consolation for Our Times

The historian and political theorist Michael Ignatieff began writing a book about consolation before the first lockdown. Now, our lives changed by Covid-19, and with over 80 million refugees fleeing conflicts worldwide, On Consolation feels spectacularly timely. He explains what we can learn from key figures through history who responded creatively to a crisis in conversation with broadcast journalist Allan Little.
