NY Strand Books with Prof. Rashid Khalidi 30 March 7pm

The main public event to launch Dining with al-Qaeda in New York will be held at Strand Book Store, 7pm-8pm, on Tuesday, 30th March 2010. (See Strand calender here).

I’ll be discussing the book and its principal themes – including American media coverage of the Middle East, and perhaps modern-day Orientalism as well – with Professor Khalidi, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and the author of Sowing Crisis: The Cold War and American Dominance in the Middle East.

The event will also be broadcast live on STRAND TV.

[Originally, Leslie H. Gelb, formerly of the Council on Foreign Relations and the New York Times, kindly agreed to discuss the book with me at this event — he has researched U.S. media coverage of before, during and after the invasion of Iraq, published here with Jeanne-Paloma Zelmati as ‘Mission Not Accomplished’ in the Summer 2009 edition of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas. Unfortunately, Gelb has had to cancel in order to follow a course of medical treatment.]
