US FOREIGN POLICY towards CHINA: What can a progressive policy look like?
The politics of OIL: roiling CHINA, INDIA.
The photos of ANWR that were banished to the Smithsonian's basement.
EYES OF THE HEART.
*********************************************************
1: We continue with our Election 2004: An APA Primer, with a focus on 
foreign policy, this time towards China. To the extent that China does 
figure at all in the political pronouncements of either Bush or Kerry, it 
is primarily either as the threat to be contained with textile tariffs and 
military maneuvers, or as the place where all US jobs are disappearing. The 
social upheavals within China and their larger ramifications do not even 
register. JOSHUA MULDAVIN joins us to examine the two parties' attitudes, 
and to offer a progressive alternative policy.

  2: We then bring you two segments on the politics of oil. SONIA SHAH, the 
author of Crude: The Story of Oil will focus on the huge changes in Chinese 
and Indian society  - and their relevance to the US - resulting from 
unchecked industrialization and a rapidly growing car-driven economy. Next 
the photographer SUBHANKAR BANERJEE will talk about his photographs of the 
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge currently on view at the Gerald Peters 
Gallery (24 E 78th St). These photos are famous for having been banished to 
the basement of the Smithsonian when they proved awkward at the height of 
last year's push towards drilling in the ANWR.

(Sonia Shah speaks in NY Oct 14. See below)

3: Finally we bring you an interview with Eyes of the Heart  playwright 
CATHERINE FILLOUX and director KAY MATSCHULLAT. This play, opening today 
(Oct 12), brings to the stage the story of a Cambodian family's life in the 
US after fleeing the Khmer Rouge.
