Posting will be light here in March and probably in April as well. Before going silent for a while, however, I might as well link to a few things:
*This article by Kalyvas and Balcells (from 2010) is something I'll be reading in the next week or two.
*A review (h/t HC) of James Hershberg's 900-page tome about a missed chance to end the Vietnam war in 1966.
*The continuing toll of chronic childhood malnutrition: here.
Also: Cynthia Ozick & Henry James.
