by Charles Glass

Americans in Paris tells for the first time the true story of the thousands of Americans who stayed in Paris during the Nazi occupation. This tale of adventure, intrigue, passion and deceit exposes the lives of Americans caught up in war from the day the German army marched into Paris in June 1944 and took many of them into the Paris underground, the Maquis and the concentration camps.

Egypt Surprises the West Again
Taki's Magazine 
My old political philosophy teacher Professor Yusuf Ibish outlined the conditions he thought would lead inevitably to revolution. They included the population's impoverishment, denial of dignity, and repressive rulers who used torture and false imprisonment. I asked him where conditions would create such a revolution, and without hesitation he answered, "Egypt." He said this in the spring of 1973. The...

Aging More Gracefully Than England
Taki's Magazine 
As I write these words and watch them grow into sentences, I am living the final hours of my fifties. By the time you read this, I'll be sixty years old. Or, as French and other Romance languages put it, I shall have sixty years. Having these four-seasons-times-sixty on my person feels heavy, but it seems I am far from...

Stéphane Hessel: From Resistance to Indignance
Taki's Magazine 
Late last year, a small book by a ninety-three-year-old man unexpectedly reached the summit of France's bestseller list. Stéphane Hessel's Indignez-Vous! (Be Indignant!) sold more than 600,000 copies from October through December, propelling it by several hundred thousand copies over Prix Goncourt winner Michel Houellebecq's novel, La carte et le territoire. Stéphane Hessel had written other books, and his publishers,...

On Guarding the Public's Right to Ignorance and Meeting With Julian Assange
Taki's Magazine 
When a journalist disappears in Russia or is murdered in Iraqi Kurdistan, his or her colleagues in safer climes stand up to be counted. No one should be killed, tortured, or imprisoned for publishing information or opinions that the powerful find inconvenient. Organizations such as the Committee to Protect Journalists, Article 19, and PEN regard it as their duty to...

Henry Kissinger's Fakepolitik
Taki's Magazine 
Henry Kissinger should emulate Old Marley's ghost, which "floated out upon the bleak, dark night" from the chambers of Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge. It was a gentle, necessary departure from our world that allowed Scrooge to confront his past and contemplate his future. Although Kissinger remains alive, if that is the right word, at the age of 87, the ghosts of...
