Clara Heyworth20 October 2010

On September 20th, Tariq Ali was joined at New York's Brecht Forum by John R. MacArthur (President and Publisher of Harper's and author of You Can't Be President) and Frances Fox Piven (Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Political Science at the CUNY Graduate Center and author of Keeping Down the Black Vote) for an event to launch The Obama Syndrome: Surrender at Home, War Abroad—itself a kind of midterm report on the (failures of the) Obama administration to date. The event aired on C-SPAN's Book TV on October 10th and can now be viewed online by visiting the C-SPAN archives.
