July 31, 2008

CFR.org Deputy Editor Robert McMahon and The Economist International Correspondent Lane Greene preview major world events in the week ahead.

In this week's podcast: reverberations from Turkey's High Court decision not to ban the ruling party; Condoleezza Rice will host Israeli and Palestinian peace talks in Washington; and the opening of the Olympics in Beijing will be a pageant of politics as well as sport.

The World Next Week is a coproduction of CFR.org and The Economist.
