I did conclude the Ferguson last night. It was an enjoyable if puzzling text. The greatest emphasis was upon appeasement and the relative economies of the subsequent war's pivotal nations. The text also featured a stilted epilogue with hovered over the drift towards thermonuclear war during the Cuban Missle crisis and then, oh yeah, bad things happened in both the Balkans and Rwanda, but hey, we aren't as eager yet to kill one another by the millions.

I have read nearly 100 pages of Ricks' Fiasco today, a gift from my wife. It is disturbing but not nearly as much as the Fisk. Ricks is a journalist and quite the capable one. He doesn't have vision of Fisk but Fiasco remains an engaging text.
