Thatcher Shatz Coates

I don’t know if I’ve ever “journaled” by smartphone, but let’s give this a try.

Some great pieces in the new (Dec. 3) issue of The London Review of Books I just received.

Money quotes so far:

From David Runiciman on Margaret Thatcher:

“She had no desire to live in a world where her personal principles and her private interests were at odds with each other. She was a conservative.”

 

 

From Adam Shatz on ISIS, which starts, “All the actors in the Syria cauldron — the Gulf. . .

“All actors in the Syrian cauldron — the Gulf States, Turkey, Hizbullah, the Russians, the Americans — have had a hand in creating this monster, but no one seems to want to fight it, apart from the Kurds.”

 

 

 

And, no picture needed, finally, an actually critical review of Te-Nehisi Coates’ new book, Between the World and Me.
