My blogging colleague, Juan Cole, who publishes the blog, Informed Comment: Thoughts on the Middle East, History and Religion, will be speaking at a forum I am chairing next week at the New America Foundation. He will be speaking about his just released book, Napoleon’s Egypt: Invading the Middle East.
But I bet in the Q&A session, Cole would not be averse to receiving some questions on ‘Bush’s Middle East.’
This is open to the public — and you are welcome to join us at the New America Foundation (see website for address) on Friday, 24 August, from 12:15-1:45 pm as long as you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and state that this is for the Juan Cole meeting. You bring your own brown bag lunch.
Juan Cole is someone very worth spending time with — and more importantly, folks should be reading his book.
