Alan Dershowitz vs. Jeremy Ben-Ami American Foreign Policy and Israel

0 Alan Dershowitz vs. Jeremy Ben Ami American Foreign Policy and Israelhttp://www.92y.org/shop/category.asp?category=Lectures+and+Conversations888All+Lectures888

Moderated by Eliot Spitzer, Alan Dershowitz and Jeremy Ben-Ami debated over American policy in the Middle East on Sat, Nov 21, 2009.

Should military solutions or diplomatic ones be favored? What is the role of pro-Israel advocacy at a time of changing relationships between the U.S. and Israel? Has J Street helped or hurt the prospects for peace? Does the traditional lobby speak for all, or even most, American Jews? highlights in the video of Alan Dershowitz, who has been called Israels top defender in the court of public opinion, and Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and director of J Street, wrestling with these and other issues.

The whole program is now available on Amazon, you can purchase it here: http://www.amazon.com/92Y-Alan-Dershowitz-vs-Jeremy-Ben-Ami/dp/B002ZCXU2G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1259704205&sr=8-1

The Great Fire: Shirley Hazzard with Richard Ford at the 92nd Street Y

0 The Great Fire: Shirley Hazzard with Richard Ford at the 92nd Street Yhttp://www.92Y.org/Poetry

A rare meeting of two modern-day masters of the grand themes—”time, love, the coming around of inexorable events… the acceleration and dislocation of modern life.” What Australian novelist Shirley Hazzard once said about her own subject matter can also be said of Richard Ford’s, especially his epic Bascombe Trilogy (The Sportswriter, Independence Day and The Lay of the Land). Ford is a great admirer of Hazzard’s work and will serve as her interviewer for this very special evening. Author of such contemporary classics as The Transit of Venus and The Great Fire, Hazzard is “one of the greatest writers working in English today,” said Michael Cunningham. The evening features readings of Hazzard’s work by Annabel Davis-Goff.

The daughter of Jewish immigrants, she published her first short story, “Come Again Tomorrow,” when she was 15. At 21, Gordimer briefly attended Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg where she was exposed to the social and political atmosphere of South Africa, which would become the focus of her works. Gordimer’s short stories have been published in various magazines such as the The New Yorker, Harper’s, and The Yale Review. She received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991 and continues to live in and write about South Africa.

Nadine Gordimer appeared at the 92nd Street Y early in her career on April 24, 1961 to read selected short stories. In the video clip here, listen to “A Style of Her Own.”
