Audible Editor Reviews

A large swath of the U.S. population considers the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to be "wrong", "immoral", or "ineffective". Noah Feldman, law professor at Harvard University and one of the most acclaimed intellectual lights of his generation, argues that these wars have an additional distinction: They represent a reversal of longstanding U.S. policy in the Middle East.

In this 2008 lecture, delivered at New York’s respected 92nd Street Y, Feldman seeks to contextualize the Middle East and analyze U.S. policies toward it. Whether you are a hawk or a dove, Feldman’s presentation will surely provoke a honing of your original idea. Feldman delivers his lecture in a serious and studious but friendly manner.

Publisher's Summary

The United States' response to the terrible events of September 11, 2001, marked a watershed in American policy toward the Middle East region. Instead of pursuing stability, the country has practiced a strategy of destabilization in the hopes of democratization. What are the results, and what can we expect U.S. policy to be in the new administration?

Noah Feldman is professor of law at Harvard University, a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine and an adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He is the author of After Jihad: America and the Struggle for Islamic Democracy; What We Owe Iraq: War and the Ethics of Nation Building; Divided by God: America's Church-State Problem - and What We Should Do About It; and The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State.
