Paul Berman on Tariq Ramadan

by Michael J. Totten
Paul Berman has written an epic-sized essay the length of a small book about Islamic activist Tariq Ramadan for The New Republic. It is called The Islamist, the Journalist, and the Defense of Liberalism. This is not intended to be read in one sitting. You might want a hard copy of this one.
I don’t normally recommend you read something I haven’t (yet) read in its entirety myself. But this is Paul Berman we’re talking about. His books Terror and Liberalism and Power and the Idealists should be considered required reading for every single person who reads this blog.
