One is never too old or too young to write a memoir. J.D. Vance’s memoir about growing up in a working class white American family is aptly timed for this year’s presidential elections, and explains the support for Donald J. Trump in a constituency which feels disempowered and frustrated about the future.  more>>>

ABSTRACT

In her reading of Pericles, Prince of Tyre, Marjorie Garber traces an entertaining trajectory from incest to romance, maturity, and sexual alterity in which the troubling consanguineous detour is closed with finality.  more>>>

The run-up to the Olympic Games in Rio was accompanied by numerous reports in the world press that were largely negative and highlighted Brazil’s unpreparedness, disorganization and problems of health, crime, sanitation, hygiene and a lack of enthusiasm on the part of many Brazilians, especially the poor slum dwellers in Rio’s favelas.  more>>>

The official attitude, political and legal, of Britain to Islamic terrorists, jihadists and their supporters has and continues to be ambivalent. It used to be indecisive: now it’s not so sure. If not imitating the action of the tiger, British policy needs a stiffening of the sinews.  more>>>

All we know about Donald Trump's policy is what he says, not what he has done or will do. Trump has no policy track record. He has never held office. Intimations of what he might do are often vague too. Yet, beneath the rhetorical bluster, a few broad reality strokes are evident.  more>>>
