Eqbal Ahmad provides clear, rational thought in understanding world politics. Barsamian, the interviewer, has Ahmad discuss a wide range of topics, much of it concerning India, Pakistan, the Arab and Muslim worlds, and American foriegn policy. Indispensable.

I've only heard Eqbal once...and that was in 1998---mere months before he passed away. Prof. Ahmad's views on South Asia, the Middle East, world geopolitics in general, and the U.S. in particular, are frank and quite different from what one would hear from official sources. Far from being an extremist, he has long been a rational voice in these issues. This collection of interviews with Eqbal give unique insight to his thoughts, and some reminescence to those who wish to have heard him lecture one more time.
