Now folks, don't whine, cry, and protest so loudly all at once. There's plenty else to read in the blogosphere, even if it isn't as great and high-trafficked as the stuff here. ;)
Plus, I promise I'll never use S. Lemieux-isms like "green lanternism" and "trooferism" for the good reason that I have only a vague idea what (if anything) they mean, and little interest in wasting my time pinning down a definition. See you later.
DON'T GO !
Perhaps you could refund my subscription? ; )
Thought I might mention some things that are or might be on my reading list in coming weeks/months, as I hope to spend less time online and more reading (we'll see).--Plan to finish the small number of pp. I have left in Wright's The Looming Tower, a bk that I read most of and then put aside.--Probably will read Mearsheimer's Why Leaders Lie, as it's v. short, fits this blog's general subject focus, and I just bought it on sale from Oxford U.P.--Just ran across a bk from the mid-1990s by Richard Ohmann on mass culture in the U.S. at turn of the 20th cent. Looks quite interesting, though of course has nothing to do w IR. (Listed as on the shelf at the univ. lib. where i can borrow bks.)--There's a recent bk on Althusser that looks sort of interesting, but i'll prob decide it's too heavy to actually read through, though might look at it.--G. Poggi's 1978 bk on the state. Shd prob. have cited it in my diss. but didn't. I own the paperback, have dipped into it. Whether I will read it is a ?.--More Melville? possibly. (Plus there are always various classic works i'm embarrassed to admit not having read and that i might decide to tackle. Or not.)--A bk (translated version) from the early 1980s by the Fr. journalist Gerard Challiand, based on 2 trips he made to Afghanistan in 1980. Picked it up at a used bkstore a while back. Have glanced at it. Obvs v. dated, but has a short historical survey of the country followed by his observations about the war betw Soviet forces and their opponents. Doubt I'll actually read it tho wd be interesting as a retrospective exercise.--A recent edited bk on the Cold War and the US, think it's called 'Uncertain Empire' (not bothering to double-check now). Possible.
