Eric Walberg on Arab Spring & Muslim Brotherhood summer

Tuesday, June 26th, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on (archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Guest: Canadian journalist Eric Walberg, author of Postmodern Imperialism. Eric has been living in Cairo for the past several years, writing for al-Ahram among other outlets, and got to witness the Egyptian revolution first-hand.
       Now that the once-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood has swept both the parliamentary and presidential elections, and the remnants of the Mubarak junta have responded by dissolving parliament, will Egypt return to dictatorship or blossom into an Islamic democracy? And what does “Islamic governance” mean, anyway?
       Eric Walberg’s latest article is Islamic law: Playing God in the here and now.
