“Dreams and Shadows: The Future of the Middle East”

Tuesday, March 18, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Dreams and Shadows: The Future of the Middle East

I am spending today’s program with Robin Wright, the extremely able American journalist who has spent more time in the Middle East than almost every other American writer. Her new book is a survey of the most controversial subjects and most troubled areas in the region, and should be read by anyone with an interest in the threats radical jiahdism poses the West.

Though we disagree on Iraq (I agree with McCain on the importance of the mission there and she is of the school that it is the greatest foreign policy disaster in American history), Wright’s knowledge of the region and her interviews with key radicals, intellectuals and dissidents combine with compelling accounts of various countries’ histories to provide a primer and a polemic under the same covers.

The transcript will be posted here later, and the audio here.
