Description

Bernard-Henri Lévy in conversation with Adam Gopnik

On Life, Geo Politics and Ominous Times Ahead

Bernard-Henri Lévy, one of the West’s leading intellectuals, will talk about his new book, “The Empire and the Five Kings: America’s Abdication and the Fate of the World.”

“In this exquisite gem of a book, Bernard-Henri Lévy offers a poetic plea for moral courage and clear thinking in these dark times. He is an international treasure.” – Robert Kagan

“At the heart of Bernard-Henri Lévy’s passionate essay is his anger at the betrayal of the Kurds. He spirals out from there to offer a strongly felt portrait of our contemporary reality in which the ‘empire of nothing,’ the West that has lost its way, risks being superseded by new powers, the ‘five kings, pathetic yet daunting, cartoonish yet terrible.’ A challenging analysis, at once scholarly and readable.” - Salman Rushdie

“Often arresting, always heartfelt prose. This is a brave book…we need Mr. Lévy’s voice.” – Martin Peretz, The Wall Street Journal
