David Bromwich: Don’t Resist, Oppose

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

The nat­ional security state that Obama inherited and broadened, and has now passed on to Trump, is so thoroughly protected by secrecy that on most occasions concealment will be an available alternative to lying. Obama’s awareness of this frightening legacy accounts for the unpredictable urgency with which he campaigned for Hillary Clinton – an almost unseemly display of partisan energy by a sitting president. All along, he was expecting a chosen successor to ‘dial back’ the security state Cheney and Bush had created and he himself normalised.



Sidney Blumenthal: The First Family

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

Reckoning with Trump means descending into the place that made him. What he represents, above all, is the triumph of an underworld of predators, hustlers, mobsters, clubhouse politicians and tabloid sleaze that festered in a corner of New York City; a vindication of his mentor, the Mafia lawyer Roy Cohn, a figure unknown to most Trump supporters.



David Trotter: Orwell’s Nose and Prose

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000

Orwell may have become more important as a symbol than for anything he actually wrote. Both of these books seek to reverse that suspicion, one by tethering the symbol to some distinctly fallible human flesh, the other by subjecting Orwell’s political prose to the kind of scrutiny ordinarily reserved for the novels of Henry James.



Andrew O’Hagan: Hemingway the Spy
