Simon Jenkins: This ban is a classic instance of centralised meddling which ignores the potential of local self-discipline.

From The Chronicle, new universities for Muslims, many supported by groups in the Middle East, are spreading through the sub-Saharan region

A review of Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic by Chalmers Johnson

From Commentary, the CIA's record of failure, bad enough before George Tenet, is now beyond question. Can it be repaired? From the New York Review of Books, what Tenet knew: A review of At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA by George Tenet. Did the Bushes get to George Tenet? Why did a man who seemed so bent on cashing in put off writing his memoir—at a loss of some $2 million? A review of Twice as Good: Condoleezza Rice and Her Path to Power by Marcus Mabry. A review of George Kennan: A Study of Character by John Lukacs

From Vanity Fair, The History Boys: In the twilight of his presidency, George W. Bush and his inner circle have been feeding the press with historical parallels: he is Harry Truman—unpopular, besieged, yet ultimately to be vindicated—while Iraq under Saddam was Europe held by Hitler. To a serious student of the past, that's preposterous. Writing just before his untimely death, David Halberstam asserts that Bush's "history," like his war, is based on wishful thinking, arrogance, and a total disdain for the facts

From Foreign Policy, is it too late for America to win back its disappointed admirers? Not if the United States returns to its founding ideals and finally puts to bed the myth of “American exceptionalism” once and for all, says Anne-Marie Slaughter; and where's the love? Each year, the United States seems to slide ever lower in the world’s esteem. But not everyone hates America. Hidden inside a new 47-nation Pew Global Attitudes Survey are some surprising oases of support for the world’s sole superpower

From Conversations With History, an interview with Nayan Chanda, author of Bound Together: How Traders, Preachers, Adventurers, and Warriors Shaped Globalization.

Gordon Brown resorted to his school's Latin motto when pledging commitment to his new job, but what's the significance of these ancient mission statements? The idea is simple, a bit of Latin spells a dose of gravitas, and a hefty slice of tradition and history

From Commentary, an exchange on Jews, IQ and history.

Catholic teaching once knew the evil that came from releasing individuals from moral law. Will it ever return to the idea that Gods justice must permeate relations of capital and labor?... more»

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar


"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"

Graham Fuller


"... extremely useful"

Andrew Mango


"FPR olmadan ne yapardım ya da bugüne kadar ne yapmışım bilemiyorum"

Soli Özel


"Güne başlamak için FPR’den daha iyi bir yol düşünemiyorum"

Hasan Ünal
