Have been reading the latest edition of Foreign Affairs - lots of good stuff in it, as always. Two articles that have been giving me great food for thought are:

History and Hyperpower - is the US an empire in the style of past empires? Should we be comporting ourselves as one? What has history to show us?

Strengthening African Leadership - a look at some post colonial governments in Africa that are working and why. While we're at it, I think that it would be very good to read this article in conjunction with a Tech Central Station article on an African miracle.
