eBook: Dissidents Of The International Left by Andy Heintz
Dissidents of the International Left gives a clear-headed look at the many different strands of the international and domestic leftist currents pulsing throughout the world. With over 70 interviews it gives lesser known dissidents, leftists, secularists and feminists the same platform as more well-known progressive and Leftist stalwarts.
The author interviews relatively well-known and famous intellectuals from the Western world such as Noam Chomsky, Ed Vulliamy, Amy Goodman, Michael Walzer, Meredith Tax, Bill Weinberg, Peter Beinart, Juan Cole and George Monbiot. He also interviews many prominent intellectuals and dissidents from the non-Western world including Amartya Sen, Pervez Hoodbhoy, Nadezhda Azhigikihna of the Russian Union of Journalists, Algerian native Marieme Helie Lucas, Mahmoud Mamdani, Robin Yassin-Kassab, Fawwaz Traboulsi, Mouin Rabbani, Mexican journalist Anabel Hernandez, Malalai Joya, Teesta Setelvad, her husband Javed Anand, Sokeel Park of Liberty in South Korea, atheist intellectual Leo Igwe of Nigeria and many others.These intellectuals and journalists offer many opinions that deserve a much broader readership in the Western world.
