Saturday Video: From the Ruins of Empire - Mishra and Baruma

by Salman Hameed

I am currently reading Pankaj Mishra's fantastic book new book From the Ruins of Empire: The Intellectuals who Remade Asia. The first part of the book focuses on Jamal-al-din al-Afghani and does a great job of tracing the evolution of his shifting views about imperialism and modernity. In any case, here is a conversation between Ian Baruma and Pankaj Mishra about this particular book. Enjoy.
