International leftist figure Tariq Ali is less of a firebrand than he was in the late 60s, but he remains a steady critic of the United States' foreign policy and the global neoliberal economy. Tonight at 6 PM he talks at the University of Chicago's International House about Pakistan's central place in its region and in the ongoing global war on terror, as well as the forces competing for influence over the country since the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. Pakistan, Afghanistan, and American interests in the region are the focus of his latest book, The Duel: Pakistan on the Flight Path of American Power. Find details of tonight's event here.
