New on the site this time:
Only one text: Ren Jiantao “Han Fei and the Theoretical Gestalt of Operationalized Politics,” long and a bit contentious, but worth a look!
Otherwise, I have started my career as a retired world traveler, visiting Colombia for two weeks in early October before flying to Switzerland to settle into my new life in Lausanne. Turns out I fractured my ankle in the mountains of Colombia just before leaving (sounds more Harrison Ford than it was), so my mobility is a bit limited, but I will still visit Paris for my book launch (ooh la la!) on November 17, and will try to give a couple of talks and see friends while I’m there.
I am also launching a travel/retirement blog entitled “The Red-Eye to Bogotá,” in which I try to become a writer. I welcome you to be a reader!
