FEATURING TAMIM ANSARY – We live in an increasingly globalized world, connected by digital communication and more aware than ever of the rest of humanity. But maybe our current world order is not so different from what went before. In a sweeping new book, acclaimed writer Tamim Ansary attempts to make sense of human history through our understanding of one another and ourselves. He points out that seemingly disconnected historical events were in fact linked to one another. And that today, although we may be more connected than ever, we are also limited by our world views and remain siloed by religion, culture, geography and more.
Tamim Ansary, the acclaimed and award-winning author of West of Kabul, East of New York, Destiny Disrupted, and Games Without Rules. His new book is called The Invention of Yesterday: A 50,000 Years History of Human Culture, Conflict, and Connection.
