Eqbal Ahmad: Confronting Empire

Edward W Said once urged the legendary Eqbal Ahmad not to leave your works scattered to the winds or even recorded on tape but collected and published in several volumes for everyone to read Then those who don t have the privilege of knowing you will know what a truly remarkable gifted man you are br br Unfortunately Ahmad died suddenly before Said s wish came to fruition Now for the first time Ahmad s most provocative ideas are available in book form br br In these intimate and wide ranging conversations Ahmad discusses nationalism ethnic conflict the politics of memory and liberation struggles around the world br br Praise for Eqbal Ahmad br br Eqbal Ahmad perhaps the shrewdest and most original anti imperialist analyst of Asia and Africa was a man of enormous charisma and incorruptible ideals He had an almost instinctive attraction to movements of the oppressed and the persecuted and a formidable knowledge of history Arabs for example learned more from him about the failures of Arab nationalism than from anyone else Ahmad was that rare thing an intellectual unintimidated by power or authority br Edward W Said author of Culture and Imperialism br br Eqbal Ahmad was a shining example of what a true internationalist should be Eqbal was at home in the history of all the world s great civilizations He had an encyclopedic knowledge of states past and present and he knew that states had a rightful role to play But he also knew that states existed to serve people not the other way around and he had little to do with governments except as a thorn in their side To friends colleagues and students however he gave unstintingly of himself and his time His example and his memory will inspire many to carry on his work br Kofi Annan Secretary General of the United Nations br br A very dedicated and honorable activist Eqbal was right in the middle of everything He was a student of revolution and imperialism and a very good one br Noam Chomsky MIT br br Eqbal Ahmad was unique in combining compassion for the dispossessed en masse and one by one the intellectual capacity to analyze cultural political and economic issues on a transnational level and an ability to raise his always eloquent voice on behalf of constructive and original solutions br Victory Navasky Publisher and Editorial Director The Nation

9-11

In Noam Chomsky comments on the September th attacks the new war on terrorism Osama bin Laden U S involvement with Afghanistan media control and the long term implications of America s military attacks abroad Informed by his deep understanding of the gravity of these issues and the global stakes demonstrates Chomsky s impeccable knowledge of U S foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia and sheds light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power Speaking out against escalating violence Chomsky critically examines the United States own foreign policy record and considers what international institutions might be employed against underground networks and national states accused of terrorism s analysis still stands as a measure of how well the media is able to serve its role of informing the citizenry so crucial to our democracy in times of war
