Comparative Fanaticism19991016

Israeli novelist and cultural critic Amos Oz delivers the second of this year's lectures. He talks about how his childhood in Jerusalem made him an expert in `comparative fanaticism' - the links between different kinds of fanaticism - and about how the origins of fanaticism often lie in family life. The lecture is introduced by Sarah Dunant, who chairs a discussion with the audience in London's Purcell Room.
