“Taught by Stephen Kinzer, a senior fellow in international and public affairs, the seminar aims to give students 'direct experience with the job of writing journalistically about world affairs … through a combination of writing exercises and classroom discussions,' according to an online copy of the course's ...
The annual Literary Lights dinner, hosted by the Associates of the Boston Public Library, was a typically fancy affair the other night. The black-tie gala honoring writers and illustrators this year feted Julian Fellowes, the award-winning creator-writer-director of the PBS hit “Downton Abbey,” who was also the ...

Bufford, a high school journalist with WriteBoston's Teens in Print newspaper, moderated a Q&A panel with local authors Mira T. Lee, Stephen Kinzer, Madeleine Blais and Jabari Asim. The event, hosted by Sanofi Genzyme, supported WriteBoston's writing programs for youth and professional development ...
Just this month, many of us paused to observe Holocaust Remembrance Day, when we confront the incalculable costs of inaction in the face of pure evil more than 70 years ago. Thus, I was shocked to read Stephen Kinzer's op-ed endorsing a guilt-free exit for our forces from the human misery in Syria ...
'Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press', says former New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer, for example (Boston Globe, 18 February 2016). In Foreign Affairs, American professor Max Abrahms has criticised the ...
Former New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer sets out a very plausible reason why the US, UK and France keep intervening in Syria. It is not about children or chemical weapons. It is to prevent the Syrian government and Russia triumphing over the jihadists, as they have been close to doing for ...

Stephen Kinzer, a senior fellow in international and public affairs at the school, assigned the project as part of a course titled “International Journalism.” In that project, according to The Brown Daily Herald, Kinzer requires students to write a “profile piece of a DACA recipient.” Kinzer, whom The Washington ...
We know now Russia has interfered with our 2016 presidential election, but did you know that the U.S. has meddled in over 80 elections since World War II according to one Carnegie Mellon study? This hour, we look at how our country has interfered with democratic processes around the world. How do we ...
The long history of debate over America's role in the world, and whether to be interventionist or isolationist. President Trump's "America First" nationalistic approach has been seen before. Lynne Olson talks about Roosevelt and Lindbergh pre-World War II. Stephen Kinzer goes back to 1899's Treaty of Paris ...
America has been aggressively deploying its military on foreign soil since the late 19th century. As Stephen Kinzer shows in his book Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, we got our foot in the door of the regime change business all the way back in 1893 with our acquisition ...
Brown University's Stephen Kinzer says Trump actually has a good idea here, having proposed a crippling budget cut to the National Endowment for Democracy. This Reagan-era relic funnels money to foreign unions, political and civic groups, and others to pump up pro-American regimes, involving us ...
I rarely have the chance to watch TV, but I would be lying if I say I did not love political dramas. As a former student of Political Science, I see the way American politics is played out on television as a dramatized caricature of reality. My feelings are slowly changing with each passing day into the Trump ...
Students during an anti-government protest in Caracas, Venezuela on Feb. 17, 2014. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accused Washington of plotting with the protesters and expelled three US diplomats in retaliation. By Stephen Kinzer March 14, 2018. Thank you, President Trump! Finally you have made a foreign ...
STEPHEN KINZER: This really is a remarkable episode, as you pointed out. So, it happened in 1983, soon after Reagan had come into office. Grenada is a tiny island in the Caribbean. Its entire population could fit into the Rose Bowl in California. That's how small it is. But the United States was looking for a ...
During World War II, some people in Poland cheered the Nazis and helped them kill Jews. Saying so is now a crime in Poland. A new law imposes prison terms of up the three years for anyone who asserts “that the Polish nation or the Republic of Poland is responsible or co-responsible for Nazi crimes.”.
Whenever trouble breaks out in Iran, adrenaline rushes through Washington. Hearts pound excitedly at the Pentagon, the CIA, the White House, and Congress. In recent weeks, reports of street protests in several Iranian cities have triggered this Pavlovian response. Once again, however, Americans who ...
Unpredictability is the hallmark of the new world disorder. No year in living memory was as astonishing as 2017. When it began, few could have imagined that the United States would trash its alliance with Europe, support a savage bombing campaign in Yemen, re-ignite conflicts with Cuba and Iran, and ...

As I drove home from my encounter with Stephen Kinzer, two thoughts lingered and linger still, as if they were professorial truths that fully open out only after they've had time to sink in. One concerns language. It is bracing, to put the point mildly, to read of how plainly spoken were those who first began the ...
National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and White House chief of staff John Kelly watched a presidential appearance alongside Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Vice President Mike Pence in August. By Stephen Kinzer September 16, 2017. In a democracy, no one should be comforted to hear that generals have ...
Stephen Kinzer is that rare correspondent who makes the leap from newspapers into history and lands standing up. He now lectures at Brown. I met him at his summer residence in Truro, the Cape Cod town that has been refuge for generations of writers and artists for a century or more. We sat on his porch ...
Indonesian Muslims at Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta on May 26. Saudi Arabia has been working to pull Indonesia away from moderate Islam. By Stephen Kinzer June 11, 2017. Just a few months ago, the governor of Indonesia's largest city, Jakarta, seemed headed for easy re-election despite the fact that he is a Christian in a ...
There is an article that was published earlier this week in The Boston Globe by Stephen Kinzer who writes, quote, "The specter of a peaceful and prosperous Syria under Assad's leadership ... It has had some of the effect that Stephen Kinzer talks about, but I don't think that was the result of serious planning.
Divine visitations are the most powerful of all dreams. For thousands of years, leaders have claimed to be following orders from God. It is a potent claim. Human beings, after all, are fallible and may be contradicted. When God speaks, believers must obey. Among those believers was one of the most devout ...
By one count, the United States has interfered in more than 80 foreign elections between 1946 and 2000. And that doesn't count U.S.-backed coups and invasions. We speak to former New York Times reporter Stephen Kinzer, author of “Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq.” ...
Smash the state! While we're at it, let's demolish social conventions, the World Bank, the FBI, and the State Department. Encrusted institutions are the enemies of freedom. To liberate society, we must attack and undermine them. Rebels throughout history have used rallying cries like this. They fueled the ...
