Owen Schalk is a writer of short stories, novels, political analyses, and essays on film and literature. He is a columnist at Canadian Dimension, and has written for Alborada, Monthly Review, Protean Magazine, and many other publications. His most recent book is entitled Canada in Afghanistan: A story of military, diplomatic, political and media failure, 2003-2023.

It is an important contribution to our understanding of Canada’s foreign policy and an excellent resource for peace activists everywhere.
I interviewed Owen about his book recently. You can listen to it and/or read the transcript here. As well, I was pleased to host the launch of this book at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg. McNally Robinson livestreamed the launch on YouTube, and you can watch it here.
