Katha Pollitt writes: On the left, prostitution used to be seen as a bad thing: part of the general degradation of the working class, and the subjugation of women, under capitalism.

Max Samarov writes: The anti-Israel movement on campus would like you to think that divestment is a form of pure, grassroots student activism.

Unfortunately in the 21st century there seems to be a growing disconnect between the world of journalists and that of serious academics who spend their lives studying a particular culture, in this case Russia.

This a counter intuitive and sober article by Jeremy Rosen: As I watched the Sochi Winter Olympics, I thought of Putin’s long shadow was cast, malevolently, over the construction, the management, and the security of the event.
