John Berger was one of the most influential thinkers and writers of postwar Europe. As a novelist, he won the Booker Prize in 1972, donating half his prize money to the Black Panthers; as a TV presenter he changed the way we looked at art in Ways of Seeing; as a storyteller and political activist he defended the rights and dignity of workers, migrants and the oppressed around the world. Joshua Sperling places Berger within the historical narrative of postwar Britain and explores, through his work, the larger questions that vexed a generation- the purpose of art, the nature of creative freedom, the meaning of commitment.
