    The Roots of Resistance

    Yuliya Tymoshenko

    An underground war is erupting in Ukraine's occupied cities, towns, and villages, as artillery duels between Ukrainian forces and Russia’s much larger army transform the Donbas into a wasteland. 

    As the war drags on, the history of armed resistance to Nazi occupation of Europe during World War II now reads like a prophecy of the partisan war under way.

    draws a direct line from Europe's anti-Nazi underground armies of World War II to Ukraine's partisan war today.

    considers the implications of Liz Cheney’s primary loss for the GOP and American democracy.

    Brexit Britain Confronts Reality

    Chris Patten

    Britons must look at themselves calmly and honestly, recognizing the tough times that lie ahead and the changes needed to get the country back on track. Unfortunately, the country's political leaders remain unwilling to treat voters like grown-ups.

    holds out little hope that political leaders will offer voters an honest assessment of the country’s problems.

    The Post-Global Economy

    Many argue that the combined effects of the 2008 global financial crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, Sino-American decoupling, and Russia’s war against Ukraine have dealt an irreversible blow to three decades of open trade and burgeoning supply chains.
