Jon Western at Duck of Minerva

Last Friday, Charli Carpenter announced that Jon Western, Five College Associate Professor at Mount Holyoake College, has joined the blogging team at Duck of Minerva. Western featured prominently in Samantha Power’s Pulitzer-winning book  A Problem From Hell: America in the Age of Genocide; she describes how he, and others like him, resigned in protest from the US State Department in the mid-1990s. Western’s first post at DoM, not to mention his work on humanitarian intervention, suggest that the blogosphere and the discussion on Afghanistan have just been elevated. One worth watching.
