Larry Everest will talk about his new book from Common Courage Press: Oil, Power and Empire: Iraq and the U.S. Global Agenda. This unique volume compiles in one place a history of U.S. intervention against Iraq and the devastating consequences for the people and the region. It shows the ways in which war today is a continuation of that history, but also a leap to more direct military control in Iraq and around the world.
“It’s as if the author had suddenly turned the lights on in the dark cellar of American foreign policy in the Middle East… I can’t recommend it too highly for the many struggling to fathom how America came to the present calamitous role of occupying Iraq against local resistance.” -Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and The Pentagon Papers.
Free and open to the public. The program will be taped for rebroadcast throughout January on Mid-Peninsula Community Media cable: Wednesdays at 11:00 pm on Channel 28 and Sundays at 12:30 pm on Channel 27. It is part of the ongoing “Other Voices” television series produced by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.
