I already mentioned below the value of Lewis op-ed on the possibility of rebuilding Iraq, and now Powerline brings to my attention a NYT interview you can listen to with Lewis on his latest book What Went Wrong?.
Bernard Lewis has a new book just off the press, called The Crisis of Islam, which is does an excelled job of connecting historical events and Islamic ideology to the 20th Century, and to recent events.
While What Went Wrong? was much more historically-oriented, only touching on the post-WWI Middle East, this book specifically tries to explain Iraq and al-Qaeda, and suggest some ways of effectively dealing with them.
