What: Tariq Ali with Anthony Arnove
“Why are otherwise intelligent people in Britain and the United States surprised on learning that the occupation is detested by a majority of Iraqi citizens?”
Opening Bush in Babylon with this question, Tariq Ali, one of the most articulate, informed, and passionate English-speaking commentators on the Middle East today, provides in his new book, a thorough, timely and much-needed response. This Sunday night, Tariq will be joining us at 16Beaver to discuss some of the points raised in his book as well as field questions from attendees.
The evening will begin with a discussion between Tariq Ali and Anthony Arnove. Tariq as many of you know is a writer and filmmaker. He has written over a dozen books on world history and politics, five novels and scripts for both stage and screen. He is an editor of the New Left Review and lives in London. Anthony was invited nearly fours years ago by 16Beaver to speak about the sanctions against Iraq. At the time, he had just edited “Iraq Under Siege” an indispensable guide to the horrors of the Sanctions imposed against Iraq in the 90’s. More recently, he has come out with Terrorism and War, a collection of new interviews with Howard Zinn (Seven Stories Press). He is also the editor, with Howard Zinn, of Voices of a People’s History of the United States, forthcoming in 2004.
As a supplement to the evening, we have also posted a chapter from the book, so that those interested in asking some questions, can have an opportunity to consider some of the points Tariq raises. Furthermore, although the book will be out in November, copies of the book will be available for sale for the reduced price of $16.
