Historian Provides Context for Kennedy, Churchill and Johnson Quotes
The rhetoric employed in the Congressional debate over the Iraq resolution has been long on historical precedent, and short on historical context. Maurice Isserman, William R.

Kennedy in the 1960s. These are, at best, misleading historical analogies." More ...

Li quoted in Reuters
Professor of Government and China expert Cheng Li was quoted in a Reuters article about how the children of Chinese leaders today are different from their predecessors because they are avoiding the political spotlight. They were once assured tickets to power and riches, which changed after a series of scandals in the 1990s that sparked a crackdown on corruption.
