IEA Book Club – with Alex Deane

Dr Steve Davies (Head of Education, IEA) sits down with Alex Deane to discus Alex’s new book ‘Lessons From History – Hidden heroes and villains of the past, and what we can learn from them’. In Lessons from History, Alex Deane takes us on an uproarious romp through the tales you didn’t hear at school. With stories ranging from the little-known characters who played their vital parts in the world’s most famous wars to the remarkable adventures of figures across the centuries, to events so extraordinary as to be almost – almost – unbelievable, this book proves that fact is almost always wilder than fiction. Bringing these stories joyfully and often poignantly back to life, Deane finally shines a light on the tales lost to history, and on what we might learn from them today.
