BELLVILLE: 16 MARCH 2018
We Read For You

Book Choice: Age of Discovery by Ian Goldin and Chris Kutarna

USB-ED presents We Read For You.

This is a forum where highly rated books are read on your behalf. A presenter will deliver the content and guide an in-depth and academically driven discussion around the topic. Attendance is free and you can stand a chance of winning a voucher in a lucky draw.

This month’s book, Age of Discovery by Ian Goldin and Chris Kutarna, was selected by De Beers Marine and will be presented by Prof Andre Roux.

In Age of Discovery, Ian Goldin and Chris Kutarna show how we can draw courage and wisdom from the last Renaissance in order to fashion our own golden age out of this New Renaissance. Whether we’re seized by Gutenberg or Zuckerberg; the discovery of the Americas or the rise of China; copperplate or silicon etching; the Bonfire of the Vanities or the rise of ISIS; the spread of syphilis or the Ebola pandemic - a Renaissance moment, then and now, forces humanity to give its best just when the stakes are highest. Age of Discovery navigates the crises of our time and helps us all define a legacy that the world will still celebrate half a millennium from now.
