Robert Dreyfuss talked about his book Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam, published by Metropolitan Books.

Robert Dreyfuss talked about the relationship between the U.S. government and the Islamic right in the Middle East. He explained that during the Cold War, the United States, looking to gain strategic advantage in the Middle East, aligned itself with the Islamic right in countries like Saudi Arabia and Egypt even though more progressive groups existed. Mr. Dreyfuss talked about the consequences of these alignments and in Iraq and Afghanistan today. After his presentation, Mr. Dreyfuss responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
