[2]Two Churchills
Johann Hari | NYT | 12 August 2010
One Churchill defending freedom and democracy against Nazi menace. The other
despised "uncivilised tribes", supported concentration camps, poison gas, as
tools of empire-building
[3]Living With A Nuclear Iran
Robert Kaplan | Atlantic | September 2010

not feel bound by the outcome

Subodh Varma | Times of India | 14 August 2010
Short guide to complexity, volatility, of Indian state and society.
North-eastern states have 475 ethnic groups, 35 separatist movements.
Further divisions by caste, gender, community
[5]Who's a Pirate? Court Decides
Keith Johnson | WSJ | 14 August 2010

Conversation with editor of Paris Review, previously star editor at FSG. No
