What I read this week, and best wishes to readers in 2014:

Culture and memory in Franco’s Spain.

An interesting read on why, after spending millions on their development, the US military rarely uses less-than-lethal weapons.

A reminder that Russia is not the USSR.

Will Edrogan cause his own downfall?

Via Matt Duss, Israeli military intelligence “does not view Rohani’s election as a deception by Khamenei intended solely to mislead the West, but rather as an authentic leader who is creating an independent power center.”

An Israeli lawyer criss-crosses Jerusalem’s two parallel — and divided — cities.

Shashank Joshi passes along an interesting piece about India’s HAL Tejas fighter and a high-low mixed fighter force.

From earlier in the week, linkage on political violence at PVGlance.

Mélissa Laveaux – Chère Trahison.
