Episode 8 tackles the Cold War and the Middle East. Lisa Mullins interviews Rashid Khalidi of Columbia University about his new book, Sowing Crisis: The Cold War and American Dominance in the Middle East.  It’s a great topic for a week in which President Obama makes another overture toward Iran.  It’s great to be able to use the podcast to showcase items in the radio show with historical themes. Lots to say on this topic obviously but it’s a great starting point for further discussion. If you want more check out Patrick Cox’s series on the history of the Middle East and my own on the history of U.S.-Iranian relations.
