Flashpoints: The Emerging Crisis in Europe | 02/05/15
George Friedman
"Europe has always been a place of conflict and malice and anger and hatred, between classes and between nations. The question now is, can it be contained? I doubt it very much.

Jingo Unchained: What World War I Wrought | 04/17/14
Zach Dorfman
When we think about the centenary of World War I in 2014, we should consider first and foremost what it has meant for the life of our republic, and how the corrosive actions of a few can have enormously outsized consequences for the rest of us. One hundred years later, we are still fighting for or against Woodrow Wilson's war. » Publications » Articles, Papers, and Reports
