Columbia University Professor Mahmood Mamdani in conversation with Khalil Bendib on the always worthwhile KPFA. Extending earlier work, Mamdani discusses his new work and continues to demolish the myths spouted by the zio-ideologues within the ‘Save Darfur’ movement.

His new book is Saviors and Survivors: Darfur, Politics and the War on Terror. If you’d like to skip the introduction, move the cursor along the audio above to the 4 minute mark. The excellent talk goes for about 30 minutes.

Professor Mamdani has had a number of speaking events in the past week, including at Berkeley City Cluband at Columbia Teacher’s College (here’s one account by an attendee at Mondoweiss).

(The interview wraps up around the 37 minute mark and continues on to Malihe Razazan speaking with Dr. Renée Dreyfus, Curator in Charge of Ancient Art and Interpretation at Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco about a rare Achaemenid Persian relief that recently became part of the museum’s permanent collection.)
