Adam Curtis rides again

I have recommended the work of Adam Curtis here before. And if you have any hope (Ha! What an optimist you are!) of understanding the Middle East, then you urgently need to read and watch his latest post.

It is something of a mystery how Mr Curtis comes to be allowed (and presumably encouraged) to poke around in the BBC archives, but his resulting insights are worth ten of any academic tomes on the subject. More power to his elbow and archive-searching, say I.

This is well worth looking at.

I like your blog not just because you are focused specifically on writing and nothing else. I like your blog because here you write about authors unfamiliar for me, and when I read those books I discover the whole new world of another person. It’s great!

Thanks for the great post. Interesting and unusual as always.
