Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
In Vancouver, I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Gwynne Dyer joins me again. He has just published a new book, a collection of columns from the last five years: Crawling from the Wreckage. His previous column collection covering the years 2001-2005 was called With Every Mistake. So perhaps he’s feeling some hope as to the state of the world. With this book, it’s a great way to look back at the last five years, politically and geopolitically with one of the English-language’s preeminent commentators. Gwynne Dyer is a columnist, whose column is syndicated in over 175 publications around the world. You can read him in Vancouver in the Georgia Straight. He is a broadcaster, filmmaker and lecturer. His website is at www.gwynnedyer.com. This past June, he was named an Officer to the Order of Canada. Crawling from the Wreckage is published by Random House. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, in Toronto this day, Gwynne Dyer; Good morning, Dr. Dyer.
