October 7, 2010

An acclaimed historian is to deliver a lecture on the "greatness and limitations of the West" in tribute to a former director of the London School of Economics. Heinrich August Winkler, who until 2007 was chair in modern history at Humboldt University in Berlin, will deliver the lecture on 7 October.
