Tariq Ali is to appear at the Sydney Opera House on October 3rd for the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, a series of talks that seek to explore the boundaries of the unsayable.
His talk, "What We Can Learn From Terrorists", focuses on the flipside of terrorists' actions, asking
is there anything that terrorists have to teach us—about the single-minded pursuit of purpose; about the necessity of puncturing the consensus of mainstream politics and culture? Or about the need to feed the ever-hungry media beast?
Tariq Ali will deliver the 2010 Edward Said Memorial Lecture, "The Future of Palestine," at the University of Adelaide on Saturday 9 October.
Tariq Ali's new book The Obama Syndrome is out now in the US, and is coming soon to the UK and rest of world.
