Two Quick Reading Recommendations

Two recent articles made me think. The first, which is the most accesible (in more ways than one), is Richard Betts' review essay on Huntington, Fukuyama and Mearsheimer in the most recent Foreign Affairs. The second, which I am considering translating into English because it is both very good and very important, is the new article by Stathis Kalyvas and Laia Balcells in the much-maligned American Political Science Review. Grand strategist types should read the first essay, while students of counterinsurgency should plow their way through the second.
