Trust Me, I'm an Expert, a collaborative publishing venture with the British Council in association with the 2010 North American tour of The Great Game: Afghanistan.
This anthology of essays from six distinguished writers, edited and
with an essay by Christopher Merrill, invites critical scrutiny of what
it means to make informed judgments and decisions, how the arts can help
us understand conflict, the place of religion in the formation of
identity, and the nature of expertise itself. With additional essays by
Nushin Arbabzadah, Reza Aslan, Christina Lamb, Steve Clemons, and Sarah
E. Lewis, this collection explores the many ways we explain our culture
and portray other societies, while illuminating our most pressing
concerns. The book is free for download here.
