Dissidents of the International Left (304 pgs)
"Heintz by the diversity of his coverage and with great effort most admirably brings these global fissures to the surface without taking sides in a sectarian and provincial way. The book is impressive both in terms of the range of questions and the diversity of answers. As an interviewer Heintz has the ability to pose sharp but nuanced questions in a positively warm and friendly manner."— The New Arab
