Friday’s Reading List
By Taylor Marvin
What I read this week:
Alireza Nader looks at the Supreme Leader’s hand in Iran’s upcoming election.
Kevin Lees argues that the appointment of Susan Rice as national security advisor and Samantha Power as UN ambassador heralds a new era of liberal interventionism. Suzanne Nossel asks how Power’s support for human rights-minded military intervention will change US foreign policy, and Fred Kaplan explains that Rice’s appointment makes her the most powerful member of the Obama foreign policy team.
Earlier this week I rounded up links to writing on foreign policy and conflict for Political Violence @ a Glance.
A fun look at dialect differences across the United States.
