Arguably, the heroine of this story is Yevgenia Klemm, leader of 500 captured women from the Soviet Red Army. The so-called artificiality of the borders between East and West, between civilised and uncivilised, or between Europe and Asia, is held up as evidence of the broader meaningless of all physical borders.

Welcome to Russia, the largest country in the world! She is at once captivated by the mysterious painter.

It is likely that Abdou Menebhi’s denunciation of the Dutch government’s film was deeply felt. The leading editor wanted the prologue deleted.

The Crusades, armed campaigns mounted to win control of the Holy Land, were understood as a particular kind of pilgrimage, and so were many of the quests pursued by knights in life and legend. Twenty-first-century jihadists do draw on modern variants of Islamic theology. I think if it's the same story, retold the same way, it might be greeted with a yawn. Since there are so many specific names and places mentioned, eyewitnesses could have easily discredited the writings.

That is: “Reality is far less interesting than fiction.” I’ll argue that statement to my grave. These organizations often have knowledgeable people in them who are pursuing research projects of their own and like to share. But up to the late twentieth century, they tended to provide far greater scope for the free exchange of views than was available in other sectors of society. Pepper then flees across the French countryside from one disastrous job to another until the totally satisfying climax.

I know some think it's boring, but Cryptonomicon has some good writing about the Pacific theater. The symptoms and diagnosis offered by Socrates, Seneca and an army of 19th century moralists about the risks of distracted reading have been re-discovered by 21st-century neuroscientists.
