I’ve been on a trip to Europe since last weekend and won’t be back in Washington until December 7. To date, I’ve met with former Washington colleagues Eli Clifton, Daniel Luban, and Ellen Massey in London — all of whom are in various graduate degree programs in the UK. I’ve also given some presentations (on the likelihood of war with Iran and the neo-conservatives and other hawks at the University of Stirling in Stirling and Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Scotland. I arrived tonight in Venice for a series of IPS meetings that are to take place over the next several days. From here, I’ll be traveling to Geneva for a presentation at the Graduate Institute of International Studies (where my father, incidentally, studied in the mid-1930’s) before returning home.

As a result, the blog is unlikely to be updated until my return.

For analysis of the Annapolis talks, I’d refer readers to Daniel Levy’s website at www.prospectsforpeace.com, as well as IPS’s coverage by Ali Gharib. I note that Daniel was quoted by both the New York Times and the Washington Post in their analyses of the talks.
