New today from the Century:

  • Amy Frykholm on Leymah Gbowee: "If Martin Luther King Jr. had written a book exposing his personal
    failings, it would have been seen as undermining his cause. But Leymah
    Gbowee does not want to be thought of as a hero." (subscription required)
  • Frykholm talks to Gbowee for the blog
  • Shaun Casey reviews James P. Bailey: "James Bailey has written a superb, creative and timely book whose
    primary audience should be the U.S. Congress. Unfortu­nately, the
    current members of Congress do not seem to possess the intellectual
    wattage necessary to profit from it." (subscription required)
