Talk by Bernard Lewis
Professor of the History of the Near and Middle East in the University of London
Pakistan is to be an Islamic Republic. The speaker examines rhe way in which Western democratic concepts enit&red ihe Islamic world and were understood and applied by Muslims. He analyses rhe conflicts between such ideas and the Islamic political tradition of autocracy, but believes that there are elements in Muslim thought and ideals that could provide a starting-point for such an experiment in Islamic democracy.

But his li ternary glory is no; our theme ... wihich is no less than the man himself.' and Settings by Schopenhauer and ' Don't Hurt My Heart ' composed and played by Donald Swann
