by Bill Whalenvia California on Your Mind
Tuesday, October 1, 2019

If presidential impeachment drama is in the cards for Congress this fall, what’s California’s role?

To Build a Better World

by Condoleezza Rice, Philip Zelikowvia Books by Hoover Fellows
Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Two of America's leading scholar-diplomats, Philip Zelikow and Condoleezza Rice, have combed sources in several languages, interviewed leading figures, and drawn on their own firsthand experience to bring to life the choices that molded the contemporary world. Zeroing in on the key moments of decision, the might-have-beens, and the human beings working through them, they explore both what happened and what could have happened, to show how one world ended and another took form. Beginning in the late 1970s and carrying into the present, they focus on the momentous period between 1988 and 1992, when an entire world system changed, states broke apart, and societies were transformed. Such periods have always been accompanied by terrible wars-but not this time.

What looked like small, temporary budget increases will in fact add $1.5 trillion to 10-year spending levels.
