Eqbal Ahmad: Legacy of Resistance
Program #CHON-ETAL001. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on September 28, 2006.
Noam Chomsky is joined by Pakistani journalist and filmmaker Beena Sarwar, scholars Margaret Cerullo, Emran Qureshi, and Stuart Schaar, moderator Jack Trumpbour, in a celebration of the great Pakistani activist/thinker Eqbal Ahmad and the publication of "The Selected Writings of Eqbal Ahmad." Ahmad, a charismatic and brilliant strategist, died in Islamabad in 1999. He was called by his close friend Edward Said, "the shrewdest and most original anti-imperialist analyst of the postwar world." Chomsky opens the event with a great talk on the Middle East. A panel discussion follows on Ahmad's work and its significance with particular focus on Palestine, Lebanon, Iran and Pakistan. Recorded at the Harvard Law School as part of its Labor and Worklife Program.
