November 29, 1987 | Gregg Herken, Herken is Mellon Visiting Professor at Cal Tech and author most recently of "Counsels of War" (Knopf). and
Military historian B. H. Liddell-Hart used to tweak the sensibilities of platitudinous colleagues by writing of "turning points in history--where history refused to turn." With a Soviet-American treaty apparently about to be signed banning intermediate-range missiles in Europe, the modern history of arms control may be approaching such a fateful intersection. But it remains to be seen whether history--a juggernaut whose motive force is often irony--will make the curve. "Superpower Arms Control" is a scholarly account of earlier efforts to limit the number and/or threat of nuclear weapons.

While visiting the Los Angeles area to attend the International Studies Assn. Conference at Anaheim we read with considerable concern Richard Haass' article (Editorial Pages, March 24), "A Rocky Course in the Aegean for Shultz." We believe that this article deserves serious critical comment. For behind a thin veneer of evenhandedness the author hides some serious distortions of the troubled realities in the area. 1--Haass' conclusion is that the United States should "steer clear" of a mediating role and leave Greeks and Turks to find a settlement through direct dialogue.
OPINION
November 10, 2004
With the resignations Tuesday of Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft and Commerce Secretary Don Evans, President Bush can begin to make good on his pledge to reach out to the half of the country that didn't vote for him. Relieved of the burden of running for reelection, Bush is now free to pick a more centrist attorney general who will depoliticize law enforcement. Moreover, if Bush's talk of bipartisanship is more than empty rhetoric, his needed overhaul of his Cabinet should not stop there.
