Mike's Blog Round Up

To all my American friends and family (yes, I’m ¼ American!), to everyone at C&L, and of course to all of you, dear readers, I wish you a very happy Fourth of July.

But let's take this occasion to look beyond America's borders. No disrespect.

Blood & Treasure: The paradox of protest in Hong Kong.

Fruits and Votes: Presidentialization in Turkey.

Triple Crisis: Marking 50 years of the G77.

The Galloping Beaver: The trouble with Canada's New Democrats.

Outside the Beltway: Radical Islam and the First World War.

And if you want to listen to some great music, today or any day, how about one of my favourites, the British post-prog band Anathema, a band that deserves much more attention on this side of the Atlantic?

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here through the weekend.
