Knowledge as resistance

We’re delighted to welcome world-leading lawyer and academic John Sexton to the Book Festival. In Standing for Reason, Sexton uses his experience as president of New York University to mount an impassioned defence of the value of academic institutions against what he calls ‘secular dogmatism’. Today, he’s interviewed by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who wrote the foreword for this guidebook to connected higher education.
