May 20, 04:39 PM

2020's most talked about historian - the man who uncovered the real "Lord of the Flies" and challenged the billionaires of Davos to accept a new world order - where hope beats hate and co-operation trumps cruelty.

With a bold re-interpretation of humanity, Rutger Bregman is changing our perception of the past in order to re-invent the future.

Videos of him taking on the elite of Davos and US talk shows, have been viewed over 24 million times and his recent article, uncovering the "real Lord of the Flies" sparked a bidding war in Hollywood.

Fans and admirers include Stephen Fry and Yuval Harari and his new book is being hailed as the "Sapiens of 2020."

Humankind: A Hopeful History, challenges the belief long held by society that human beings are selfish by nature and instead that we are predominantly good animals, designed by evolution to co-operate with kindness, rather than survive and prosper through cruelty.
