Mike's Blog Round Up
March 16, 2014

Alright, that's it for me this week. See you all again soon.

For us in North America, a lot of our attention is focused beyond our borders these days, what with Russia/Ukraine/Crimea and MH370 dominating the news. But what else is going on? Let's check out some great blog posts with an international/IR focus:

Fruits and Votes: Israel's interesting new governance law.

Blood & Treasure: Tony Benn's socialist sense of justice.

The Disorder of Things: Iconographies of the French Revolution.

Howl at Pluto: Nation-building and modernization in U.S. foreign policy.

Asian Security Blog: The similarities between China and Wilhelmine Germany.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings).
