Description:

Between the middle of the 19th and 20th centuries, around three-dozen men and women changed the way we see the world. Half of them were Jews. At that time, Jews amounted to 0.002% of the world's population. How do we explain that discrepancy? How did a handful of Jews see what others could not - in rewriting the laws of space and time, of capital and society, of art and mass entertainment, of football and sex? In his new book, Genius and Anxiety, Norman Lebrecht examines the neglected phenomenon of Jewish overachievers. A Question and Answer period will follow; please email your questions during the online presentation to [email protected]
