    C-SPAN 1 & 2 (times e.t.)

    Posted by Ginny on 15th April 2005 (All posts by )

    Book TV Schedule. C-SPAN 1 schedule. This week’s After Words and Q&A.

    Thomas Sowell, one of the heroes from our masthead, spends an hour with Lamb.
    On C-SPAN 1, Lamb Q[uestions] & Thomas Sowell A[nswers] (8:00 p.m. and again 11:00). Now Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution, Sowell’s Ph.D. in economics is from the University of Chicago. The link (which is the same as above) gives much information. His publications are numerous: the first is Economics and Analysis, published in 1971, and his last, Black Rednecks and White Liberals: And Other Cultural and Ethnic Issues, came out in 2005. Others include The Quest for Cosmic Justice (1999) and A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles (1987). (Probably more knowledgeable Chicagoboyz can fill us all in on Sowell’s career and ideas.)

    C-SPAN 1 & 2 (times e.t.)

    Posted by Ginny on 1st April 2005 (All posts by )

    Book TV Schedule. C-SPAN 1 schedule. Topics from After Words and Q&A follow.

    C-Span-2’s In-Depth monthly feature interviews Robert Kaplan Sun at noon – when listeners can call in or e-mail questions; this is repeated at midnight. E-mail connection is up on the site. Kaplan, a correspondent for Atlantic Monthly, has reported on the hot spots of the last twenty years. His last book is Mediterranean Winter. His Warrior Politics was the first book on Andrew Sullivan’s short-lived book club blog. During the past few years, such works as The Coming Anarchy, Balkan Ghosts and Soldiers of God: With the Mujahidin in Afghanistan were often referred to as we tried to understand the places he had been. Not surprisingly, such interests have made him a voice listened to by

    both Pres. Bill Clinton and Pres. George W. Bush. Mr. Kaplan has been a consultant to the U.S. Army’s Special Forces Regiment, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Marines. He has lectured at military war colleges, the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency.

    Book TV Schedule, on C-SPAN 2.

    This Sunday Q&A (8:00 p.m. and again 11:00) on C-SPAN 1 features Michael Steele, the Republican Lt. Governor of Maryland.

    At After Words on BookTV (Sunday at 6 & 9)

Mr. Hague is interviewed by Martin Turner, Washington Bureau Chief for the BBC.

    C-SPAN 1 & 2 (times e.t.)

    Posted by Ginny on 18th February 2005 (All posts by )

    This Sunday Q&A (8:00 p.m. and again 11:00) on C-SPAN 1 features Mel Watt, Chair of the Black Caucus and representative from N. Carolina.

    On CSPAN 2 BookTV goes to a 3-day week-end, celebrating Presidents Day. Appropriately, on After Words

    Doug Wead, former special assistant to President George H.W. Bush discusses his book: The Raising of a President: The Mothers and Fathers of our Nation’s Leaders. He is interviewed by historian & author Harold Gullan.

    Saturday night at midnight last weeks After Words, an interview of Natan Sharansky by Tom Gjelten will be rerun. While it does not have Buchanan providing a foil (as Jonathan pointed out in his post), this hour, too, is both interesting and inspiring. Following is Jared Diamond, who is a good deal less optimistic about the human spirit in his Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. Paired last week, this time they are separated; still, Michael Crichton offers a counter argument Sunday morning (10:45) with his State of Fear.

    Brian & George

    Posted by Ginny on 29th January 2005 (All posts by )

    Brian Lamb, replacing BookNotes with his patented interview technique on Q&A scores this week-end: an interview with Bush (8:00-9:00, repeated 11-12 both Sunday evening – E.S.T.). The transcripts and streamed viewing are up. The interview is 23 minutes long and followed by roundtable with Richard Norton Smith and Doug Brinkley.

    That interview is on C-Span I; it is preceded on C-Span 2 by BookTV’s new program, Afterwards precedes this one; for those of you who haven’t caught this new program, an author is interviewed by someone with a different (often opposing) perspective. Of course, this is not the usual neutral take of C-Span (but, then, the interviewers aren’t c-span employees, either). This week Dana Priest (of the Washington Post) will interview Melissa Boyle Mahle a former US intelligence officer, about her new memoir, Denial and Deception: An Insiders View of the CIA from Iran-Contra to 9/11.
