The current epoch, which as yet has no name, began well with the peaceful re-emergence of a united German state in the centre of Europe. What went wrong?

This lecture by Cambridge Professor Sir Christopher Clark will reflect on the distinctive features of the era that began in 1989/90, the reemergence of authentic global multipolarity, the impact of the global financial crisis on Europe, and the decline of the narratives that used to help western states plot their course in history.
