This week will witness worldwide celebrations of Eid – the biggest Muslim holiday – so what better time to invite Eric Walberg, author of From Postmodernism to Postsecularism: Re-emerging Islamic Civilization.

Eric Walberg – unlike some of my colleagues at certain normally excellent publications – got the Egypt coup story right from the get-go. That’s because he knows Egypt so well, having worked as a journalist in Cairo for many years.

Eric’s new articles, discussed on this show, are:

Re-assessing political Islam: Part 1

 Re-assessing Political Islam: Part II
