      6. http://b.rw/LNOPGR

Michael Ignatieff | Reuters | 12 July 2012

"Nothing is gained by pretending that Russia and China are not the
  chief strategic threat to the moral and political commitments of
  liberal democracies." If not enemies, they are opponents. Let's not get
  too cosy with them [7]Comments

Ruth Franklin | New Republic | 12 July 2012

On the writings and posthumous fame of WG Sebald, who died in 2001
  leaving four published works. "Part memoir, part travelogue, part
  biography, and part dream, they seemed to exist in an uncategorizable
  space beyond genre" [9]Comments

Dean King | Outside | 12 July 2012

Robert Wood was not like other eight-year-olds; he was autistic and
  non-verbal. When he ran off into a deep forest in Virginia, the largest
  manhunt in state history began. But for Robert would this seem like a
  game of hide and seek? [11]Comments

      12. http://b.rw/PPe0Jn

Dani Rodrik | Project Syndicate | 11 July 2012

Forget America and Europe. Probably China too. New winners will be
  countries with manageable levels of public debt, large domestic
  markets, prosperous middle classes, and ideally democracies. Think
  India, South Korea, Brazil [13]Comments

James Kirchick | Foreign Affairs | 10 July 2012

  will it let its own values slide? "The fate of the country over the
  next several years will test the foundational principles of the entire
  European project" [15]Comments

William McGowan | Slate | 11 July 2012

  sometimes huge sums from politicians, professors, generals and TV and
  film stars [17]Comments
