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.

Let Us Now Praise Old Men
Taki's Magazine 
(with apologies to James Agee, author of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, 1941) In Paris at the Shakespeare and Company bookshop the other night, a ninety-three-year old man delivered a lecture on resistance.

Women and Democracy in the Middle East
Taki's Magazine 
One of Israel's finest journalists, Gideon Levy, wrote in the daily Haaretz, "Just as there is no such thing as a partial pregnancy, there is no such thing as a partial democracy, either." Despite how Israel pats its own back for being the Middle East's only democracy, it is not a democracy because millions of its people are under the...
