Seminar announcement: Sport, Diplomacy and Influence

Dear all,

We are pleased to invite you to attend an online seminar to be held this spring: Sport, Diplomacy and Influence. This bilingual (French & English) webinar will be held once a month. All sessions will take place from 5PM to 7PM - Paris time (except session 6 from noon to 2PM). As the seminar aims at fostering debates between historians of cultural and sport diplomacy, each session will welcome discussants from both fields.

Re: Basha on Young, 'Making the Forever War: Marilyn B. Young on the Culture and Politics of American Militarism'

Whew! Just finished reading this Review about the 'Culture and Politics' of American Militarism'. Its efforts are broad and very sweeping. Still, there are points, maybe even to many or in depth to reply for a short Review though excellently done in highlighting significant elements to the Volume.

Find some points to agree and others which would question and even likely prepared to not accept.
