Interview with Ferdinand Mount about his book Big Caesars and Little Caesars: How They Rise and How They Fall – From Julius Caesar to Boris Johnson. Discusses why he thinks it’s fair to compare Boris Johnson with a cast of despots and autocrats from Indira Gandhi and Oliver Cromwell to Louis Napoleon and even Adolf Hitler – and why he sees the impulse to autocracy as an ineradicable thread in human history.
