Berkeley Arts & Letters: CONVERSATIONS WITH HISTORY with HARRY KREISLER
As a kid, Noam Chomsky handed out the Daily Mirror at his uncles newsstand on 72nd Street, inadvertently finding himself in a buzzing intellectual and political hub for European immigrants in New York. Iranian human rights Nobelist Shirin Ebadi and her husband signed their own legal contract, attempting to restore equality to their marriage after the Iranian Revolution effectively erased the legal rights of women. Elizabeth Warren set out to expose those frauds declaring bankruptcy and taking advantage of the system -- only to discover, in her research, a very different story of hard-working middle-class families facing economic collapse in the absence of a social safety net. While studying at Oxford, a young Tariq Ali made a bet with a friend that he could work the Vietnam War into every single answer on his final exams.

In this rousing, thoughtful, often funny, and always inspiring book, a diverse and impressive group of thinkers reflect on those formative experiences that shaped their own political commitments. A fascinating new window into the revealing links between the personal and the political, POLITICAL AWAKENINGS will engage readers across generations, and will generate good discussion this evening.

As the executive director of the Institute of International Studies at the UC Berkeley, Harry Kreisler has interviewed hundreds of distinguished men and women in politics and the arts over the last twenty-five years. Kreisler is also the executive producer of the online program Connecting Students to the World and the former editor-in-chief of Globetrotter, an acclaimed Web site for global affairs.
