by David Goldman

Avoiding World War: Do Giscard and Brezhnev Know How?

by Rachel Douglas

Giscard’s sudden, emergency trip to Warsaw for consultations with Brezhnev opened up a range of opportunities for effective war avoidance policy by both East and West.

by Kathy Burdman

From volcanic eruptions which the agency had just finished “simulating” to relocation of Cuban refugees, the dictatorial Federal Emergency Management Agency has spread its rule across the country thanks to a “piling up of disasters”-and its now running whole state governments the same way the International Monetary Fund imposes “conditionalities” on whole nations.
