It was 3 a.m. on a July night in Tokyo when Elisabeth Bumiller, pregnant with her first child, finished writing the last paragraph of her book on Indian women. Her husband was asleep, the house was quiet, her mood was sad. " 'Oh my God, that's it,' I thought. 'It's all over.' The last chapter of my life with India was closed--literally." Yes and no. Finishing "May You Be the Mother of a Hundred Sons" has not broken the bond between Bumiller and India.

In late August 2005, Condoleezza Rice stepped into a Broadway theater to see the musical "Spamalot." At the end, when the lights came on, some in the audience noticed the secretary of State. Evidently angry about both the war in Iraq and the Bush administration's response to Hurricane Katrina, they stood up and booed. A careful, well-documented new biography, "Condoleezza Rice: An American Life," will not dissipate such anger.

My wife is Japanese. Before we married, I lived in Japan for a year and a half. We vacationed there as recently as August. None of which, of course, makes me any kind of authority. But it does give me an idea of how successfully Elisabeth Bumiller has portrayed a whole society by focusing on a 44-year-old Tokyo housewife and her family--without losing sight of the uniqueness of Mariko Tanaka herself.

In the space of 48 minutes, on matters large and small, the many sides of George Walker Bush were on full display Tuesday as the president held his first news conference in nearly three months. He chided one reporter for posing a "trick question." He brusquely refused to entertain a question from another who had interrupted him. He teased a third by angling for a softball question by dangling a luncheon invitation as an incentive.

In the month since the New York Times reported on a secret U.S. program designed to track financial transactions by terrorists, the newspaper has weathered a wave of censure. The White House deemed the article "offensive" and "disgraceful." Republican lawmakers demanded that Times journalists face espionage charges. Conservative commentators insisted the newspaper's reporters be banned from the White House, or worse.
