Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - A conversation with Professor Rashid Khalidi

In this week’s program, History Professor Beshara Doumani will be in conversation with Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi about his new book entitled Sowing Crisis: The Cold War and American Hegemony in the Middle East. In his new work, Professor Khalidi dissects the crucial dynamics of power in the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union as it played out in the Middle East, compellingly arguing that the intense rivalry between the U.S. and the USSR in the region set the stage for the tragic conflicts that have followed in its long wake. Rashid Khalidi is Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University. http://www.columbia.edu/cu/history/fac-bios/Khalidi/faculty.html

During the program, we will also hear selections from All Is Calm is the name of a music CD by young and talented Iranian artist Hamed Nikpay. http://www.hamednikpay.com/beta/
