  • DESCRIPTION:

No other region of the world has delivered more pain in to its own and to the United States over the past 25 years than the Middle East. Yet it remains a mystery to us in many ways.

At native of Utica born to a Lebanese family, Mr. Zogby is uniquely qualified to address what we now, don't know and should know regarding the peoples, cultures and ferments of the Arab World - a region many Western countries attempted to colonize, manipulate, dominate, and sometimes merely placate without success.

James Zogby's BIO:

James Zogby co-founded the Arab American Institute in 1985 and continues to serve as its president. He is Director of Zogby Research Services, a firm that has conducted groundbreaking surveys across the Middle East. For the past 3 decades, he has served in leadership roles in the Democratic National Committee and served 2 terms as a President Obama appointee to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. He writes a weekly column published in 12 countries. He is featured frequently on national and international media as an expert on Middle East affairs. In 2010, Zogby published the highly-acclaimed book, Arab Voices. His 2013 e-books, Looking at Iran: The Rise and Fall of Iran in Arab Public Opinion and 20 Years After Oslo, are drawn from his extensive polling across the Middle East with Zogby Research Services.
