Historically, cities preceded states as the key actors in global affairs (politically, economically and culturally). In more recent times, this trend appears to be reappearing, with the Mayor of London now having as large an international profile as the British Prime Minister. But is this actually a fallacy? Or will the twenty first century be the “Century of the City”? Case studies include the expansion of mayors as leaders, the increased role of cities in meeting global challenges (from migration to climate change) and the different experiences of city-dwellers across the globe (from prosperity to poverty).

In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
