By Nicholas Kristof. President Trump resembles a Geiger counter: When he emits increasing howls, he is signaling that we're approaching some radioactive or explosive truth. Trump is said to be near a "meltdown" in his fury at what he describes as "an attack on our country" -- by which he means ...
BAYANGA, Central African Republic — The cutest primates on earth may be Inguka and Inganda, gorilla toddler twins who playfully tumble over each other here in the vast Dzanga Sangha rain forest, one of the best places to see gorillas, antelopes and elephants play. The only risk: They are so heedless ...

Tragically, predictably, infuriatingly, we're again mourning a shooting — this time at YouTube's headquarters — even as the drive for gun safety legislation has stalled in Washington. Polls show that nine out of 10 Americans favor basic steps like universal background checks before gun purchases, but the ...

When a gunman rampaged through a high school in Parkland, Florida, three weeks ago, a 15-year-old soccer player named Anthony Borges showed undaunted courage. Anthony, who is of Venezuelan descent, apparently was the last of a group of students rushing into a classroom to seek refuge. He shut ...
This is stunning: President Trump has accepted an invitation from Kim Jong-un for a summit. It's also, I think, a dangerous gamble and a bad idea. I can't believe I'm saying that. For many years, over several trips to North Korea, I've argued for direct talks between the United States and North Korea, and it's ...

In Missouri, an acolyte of President Donald Trump is running for the U.S. Senate and denouncing ″manophobic hell-bent feminist she-devils.″.

We all know that the world is going to hell. Given the rising risk of nuclear war with North Korea, the paralysis in Congress, warfare in Yemen and Syria, atrocities in Myanmar and a president who may be going cuckoo, you might think 2017 was the worst year ever.

North Korea may be the most secretive and totalitarian country in the world, as well as the wackiest. As a result, it inspires some of the best fiction and nonfiction, so the upside of the risk of nuclear war is an excuse to dip into literature that offers glimpses of this other world — and some insights into how to ...
What is Christmas about, anyway? Can I be a Christian if I doubt the virgin birth? Can a woman become a cardinal? What would upset Jesus today? I put these blunt questions and more to Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, New Jersey, who was appointed by Pope Francis and is in his mold. Here's our ...
We journalists like to boast about how many clicks our stories get, or how our columns go viral. Fair enough, but today let me show off my clunkers. These are pieces I wrote that nobody read.

SOUTHEAST BANGLADESH, NEAR THE MYANMAR BORDER — “Ethnic cleansing” and even “genocide” are antiseptic and abstract terms. What they mean in the flesh is a soldier grabbing a crying baby girl named Suhaifa by the leg and flinging her into a bonfire. Or troops locking a 15-year-old girl in a ...
I was apparently the first blogger for The New York Times, most recently using this “on the ground” space for my own ruminations and those of others. But this technology platform is no longer going to be maintained, and we've decided that the world has moved on from blogs — so this is the last post here.
THE KINGDOM OF THIS WORLD By Alejo Carpentier. (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $15.) First published in English in 1957, this story of a slave surviving the violence of the Haitian revolution is considered a masterpiece of Caribbean literature and a stunning early example of magical realism. THE LAST ...

When New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof traveled North Korea recently, the five-day trip turned out to be "very different" from his prior two visits.

If there was a message in North Korea's launch of a new missile capable of reaching anywhere in the United States, it was that America's strategy toward that country is failing — and that war may be looming. The American public is far too complacent about the possibility of a war with North Korea, one that ...
