Niall Ferguson to be 2012 Reith Lecturer

It is one of the most distinguished of public lectures which has been running for over 60 years and in 2012 Professor Niall Ferguson has been chosen to deliver the BBC’s Reith Lectures. He joins an impressive list of philosophers, scientists and economists, amongst others, who have delivered the lectures since the first one in 1948.

As a huge fan of Niall’s books, from The Pity of War (Allen Lane/Penguin Press, 1998) to Colossus: The Rise and Fall of the American Empire (Allen Lane/Penguin Press, 2004), I for one will be looking forward to hearing what he’s got on to say on The Rule of Law and its Enemies (the title of his lecture series).

The first lecture will be broadcast on BBC Radio Four on 19 June, followed by the next three on June 26 and July 3 and July 10.
