Mary Jackson lives in London. Her career to date has been somewhat varied. Having been told at a young age that fine words butter no parsnips, she determined to put this theory to the test. To this end she worked in a greengrocer's, speaking fine words to parsnips and truth to power. Other duties included adding apples to pears and insult to injury. Fired for correcting a misplaced apostrophe, she began helping out on a whelk stall in the East End, but was fired again for stealing bits of Cockney rhyming slang and selling them on the black market. Her current employment is unknown, but she aspires to work as a metaphor mixer in a large bakery, where she hopes to have her cake and eat her words.   Ms. Jackson blogs at The Iconoclast and her articles for New English Review are archived here.

Geoffrey Clarfield - An Anthropologist at Large

At an early age Geoffrey Clarfield was trained as a classical singer at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Within the first few years of his studies he was inducted into the children's chorus of the Canadian National Opera where he performed regularly. This quickly led to stage, radio and TV work which included performances beside the late great English and Canadian actresses, Tessie Oshea and Jackie Burroughs.

As a young teenager he walked off the set of a children's TV cereal commercial and threw himself into the folk and folk rock music movement of the mid to late sixties. A growing fascination with music outside of the Afro, Anglo and Hispanic musical traditions of the new world guitar, led him to study and perform the Arabo Turkish oud and Baglama travelling to North Africa and the Middle East to learn them in their natural context. This led to graduate studies in ethnomusicology, anthropology and international development.

In East Africa he spent 16 years designing, managing and evaluating development projects while working on the policy issues of poverty alleviation. This long-term residence among non-Western peoples and authoritarian regimes caused him to doubt the validity of the cultural relativism, doctrinaire Marxism and post modernism that became mainstream to anthropology. He rejected them in favor of empiricism, the Western scientific tradition and the values of liberal democracy.

Clarfield believes that there are still gems of good research to be found in the social sciences. Like his role model, the 16th century essayist Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, he attempts to bring them to public notice as the "loose sallies of the mind" of an anthropologist at large. His New English Review articles are archived here.
 

G. Murphy Donovan is a former Intelligence officer and veteran of Catholic schools, USAF Intelligence, CIA, DIA, NSA, Vietnam, korea, and the east Bronx. He usually writes about the politics of national security. However, he occasionally strays into the cultural or culinary because he believes that the only deficits that matter are common sense, hygiene, and a good multi-grain.  He has written for most national security journals and a host of other periodicals too where his angst is pirated with abandon. Colonel Donovan's NER contributions are listed here and his blog posts are here. Help Yourself
