FOREIGN AFFAIRS Trump makes calculated response to Syrian atrocity
The targeted response by U.S. President Donald Trump to the killing of some 70 Syrians with deadly sarin gas sends an unequivocal message to Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad that the United States will respond proportionately to such actions, when it is possible to do so.

CHINA No easy way to reverse malignant one-child policy

PHILOSOPHY Rights bereft of obligations: or, Socrates versus the pig
In Homer’s Odyssey, we have an account of Odysseus and his men making landfall on the island of Aeaea, the home of witch-goddess Circe. After drugging most of the sailors, she turns them into pigs.

CINEMA Beauty and the Beast: A fairytale of true enchantment
Disney’s live adaptation of its animated musical Beauty and the Beast may be a box-office success, but its artistry pales when compared with a truly enchanting cinematic fairytale – Jean Cocteau’s 1946 realisation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s La Belle et la Bête.

BOOK REVIEW The teen they would have made queen
Although Henry famously broke with the pope over his divorce, he remained a Catholic in almost all other respects until his death in 1547. However, the genie was out of the bottle, religious change was in the air, and his son Edward grew up a thoroughgoing evangelical.
