More reasons for hope

Birth of a body politic, or rather, bodies politic, as Iraqis start to construct the public space from the bottom up, for the first time in decades. If I were a sociologist or a political scientist interested in the creation of a civil society, I would want to be in Iraq at the moment. I don't want to swallow, or regurgitate, hype, but it seems that something positive and significant is happening.
