FOREIGN AFFAIRS China takes up challenge to imitate and overtake America
Since World War II and until very recently, global relations were predominately driven by an ideological warfare represented by the polarising struggle between market capitalism in democratic states and communism. The conflict, defined by the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), manifested around the globe in wars such as those in Angola, Cuba, Chile, Korea and Vietnam. The two powers fought for supremacy in these proxy wars, the space race and, most importantly and most dangerously, the nuclear arms race.

CINEMA Christopher Robin: The best something comes from nothing
At first glance, the tales of Winnie the Pooh seem rather childish when viewed with grown-up eyes. But something about them tends to inspire a more lasting look, and with this look the mind starts to wander off, rambling its way through the paths of memory as feeling stirs thought and thought stirs feeling.

BOOK REVIEW A so-called industry with only a dark side
Some of the women admit that they were driven into prostitution through financial need but point to the downside. “The money was good, but the price I paid was more than money could justify.” (p112)

BOOK REVIEW Population see-saw changes direction
Macarrón Larumbe expositions of the adverse effect of population decline do not always ring quite true and he seems unaware that the prospect of constant population expansion and increasing production to support it that he often appears to consider necessary may strike fear for this Earth into the hearts of even the most moderate of environmentalists. Indeed, the future he predicts may well be embraced with rejoicing by ardent greenies.
