In Dangerous Ambition, Susan Hertog chronicles the separate but intertwined journeys of these two remarkable women writers, who achieved unprecedented fame and influence at tremendous personal cost.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/sep/05/nato-4000-rapid-reaction-fo...

 Stephen F. Cohen, in re:  . . .  about 6,000 people killed, most innocent civilians, and a million refugees. Can Ukraine be kept together? It’s divided families.  Further, can NATO hold together?  Ukraine is thought to  be able to hold together with a federal constitution but not only would Eastern Ukraine have its rights respected; so would the west which leans toward Europe.  Will have to have own local elected representatives. Very difficult tax revenues policy currently.  What can the federal govt do: make foreign policy?   Take the country into NATA?  Have to rule that Ukraine will always be a militarily nonaligned country, like Finland and others. Could create a suitable constitution in an hour – who can impose it?    Does Putin see Proshenko as an agent for this decentralized country? He probably sees that he won't find a better partner in Ukraine than Poroshenko . . . whose strength right now comes from his support in Europe and Washington.

Heir to the Empire City: New York and the Making of Theodore Roosevelt by Edward P. Kohn

New York Times Book Review

“Kohn shows us the ways Roosevelt both shaped and was shaped by the city.... He was not a cowboy after all, but an adroit politician who ‘carefully calculated what was practicable,’ and Kohn persuades us that New York was Roosevelt’s prep school for the presidency.”
