I've found too much to read today and almost every piece that I've found is half an evening's work. So I put down here what I intend to read during the week as a sort of public vow (with confession to follow if I don't).
I'm going to re-read Khaled Diab's The art of peace on the commentisfree website because he's making a real effort to understand where Israel comes from. I'm not sure how successful he is, but I want to look again.
Robert Kagan has a Policy Review-length article which I am certainly going to read because it begins:
The world has become normal again.
It's entitled End of Dreams, Return of History and is about the world that the well-meaning don't want to think about, one of rivalry and conflict, but the world that has virtually always been.
Another Policy Review 3-scroll job: Peter Berkowitz's review of The Matador’s Cape: America’s Reckless Response to Terror by Stephen Holmes.
