Still more link laziness
One of these days I'll write an entry that isn't either a discussion of history or a collection of links I'm too lazy to discuss. That day has not yet arrived, however:
- How similar were Tony Blair and Winston Churchill?
- The Baltic Sea, it seems, has become an archaeological paradise.
- Catapult engineers: the stars of ancient days?
- Does journal-writing improve your health? (via ArtsJournal)
- Just in time for Valentine's Day, The New Yorker reviews Simon Blackburn's meditations on lust.
- What does counterfactual history have to teach us?
- Frances Partridge, the last surviving member of the Bloomsbury Group, has died at 103.
- Ursula Le Guin explains what she thinks of everything from Harry Potter to anarchism.
- Scott McLemee discusses how one Latina cultural theorist wrestles with notions of identity and experience.
- This article (which I found via Language Log) describes a Swarthmore linguist's efforts to document a vanishing Siberian language.
- The Chicago Tribune reports that the Baghdad book market is flourishing again. The Christian Science Monitor reports that an Iraqi youth publisher is shifting its focus away from propaganda.
- The Globe and Mail reviews Norman Davies's new book about how the Allies betrayed Warsaw in 1944.
- Here's still more proof that the Howard Dean campaign is kind of scary.
I may add more links as I find them later in the day.
