Confronting Empire
Brilliant and insightful political analyses of key political events and movements of the second half of the twentieth century.
Edward W. Said once urged the legendary Eqbal Ahmad not to “leave your words scattered to the winds, or even recorded on tape, but collected and published in several volumes for everyone to read. Then those who don’t have the privilege of knowing you will know what a truly remarkable, gifted man you are.” In these intimate and wide-ranging conversations, Ahmad discusses nationalism, ethnic conflict, the politics of memory, and liberation struggles around the world.
