This collection brings together a diverse and challenging group of intellectuals to address key themes in globalization and contemporary politics. These interviews with major contemporary intellectuals offer lively and engaged ways of thinking about secularism, new global formations of power, and imperialism. These conversations are interventions in and of the present, but they offer historical perspectives that challenge dominant ways of dividing and misunderstanding our current world. The interviews are probing and pointed and suggest that we need records of such active intellectual exchange to contest the current maps of power and to chart the way toward a more just and comprehensive understanding of contemporary political reality.
