THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, September, 24th (part 2)

Europe veers to the right as social democrats across the continent struggle to find their way, how France's colonial past looms large in its bid to rescue hostages held by Islamist radicals, and name-calling in a new book about Barack Obama's White House-all in The World This Week. François Picard welcomes Matthew Saltmarsh of the International Herald Tribune, Paul Taylor of the Reuters news agency, Anne-Elizabeth Moutet of The Sunday Telegraph and Nicholas Norbrook of The Africa Report.
