Symposium on Concurring Opinions

In Conversations, Rule of the Clan on July 1, 2013 at 10:47 pm

From July 22-26, the blog Concurring Opinions will host an on-line symposium about The Rule of the Clan, moderated by Deven Desai. All readers are warmly invited to take part in what I’m sure will be a stimulating, wide-ranging discussion. I’m grateful already to my valued friends and readers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan for their interest contributing—if you’re able, I’ll be delighted to have you be a part of our conversation.

The dedicated commentators of the symposium come from a wide variety of intellectual backgrounds—and they’re terrific. They are:
