HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READING FROM THE RIGHT AND LEFT
Two posts today that I regard as " must reads", they're that good.
Hailing from the Right of the political spectrum is Marc Shulman
of the American Future
, who offers up a masterful fisking of a Nation article
that inadvertantly showcased why much of America today finds the politics of people like Tom Hayden and Angela Davis as repellent as - well...TomHayden and Angela Davis.
Coming from the Left, is Juan Cole
of Informed Comment
with a timely and valuable primeron Lebanon and its discontents with Syria
. Professor Cole demonstrates what historians do better than practitioners of other disciplines - frame an issue in its correct context in a way that is easily understood and properly analyzed.
