      This is Now: Tamim Ansary

      Thought leader Tamim Ansary returns for a discussion of his sweeping new nonfiction work, The Invention of Yesterday: A 50,000 Year History of Human Culture, Conflict and Connection. Who are we as an international people? How did the overriding influences on human history deliver us into a new world reality, and how do we confront upheavals and violence as international cultures join? Tamim Ansary sprang into prominence with Destiny Disrupted: A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes. Now he turns that scrutiny to the historical treks of smaller groups of people into today's globally connected, fully-interwoven human populace. The world's major cultural movements— Confuscianism, Islam, Judeo-Christianity and Nomadism—have, he says, reached a new interrelationship inevitable in the march of human history. We are in a new time of revolutionary reinvention, as old habits are cast aside and reconfigured. What does this new proximity portend? Join Tamim Ansary and This Is Now host Angie Coiro to learn the prices and the prospects of this singularly connected moment in human history. Photo of Tamim Ansary by Yanina Gosultsky.
