In the latest episode of the Politics Theory Other podcast Jacqueline Rose discusses her new book, The Plague.
In the interview Jacqueline discusses what the Covid-19 pandemic revealed about contemporary society and whether the initial wave of global solidarity provoked by the crisis was purely a mirage. The interview also touches on the Ukraine crisis - how Jacqueline connects the themes of war and pandemic in the book - and how Vladimir Putin's brutal invasion has had the troubling consequence of appearing to redeem the foreign policy and security establishments of the United States and Britain.
