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?
