Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s by Jeff Perlman (Book Review #28 of 2016)
Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s by Jeff Perlman . I enjoyed this book during the 2016 NBA Finals. In some ways, Golden State's small ball run-n-gun is like a throwback to the early 80's Lakers. There is much t...

A History of the Middle East by Peter Mansfield (Book Review #19 of 2016)
A History of the Middle East by Peter Mansfield (1991) One critic has suggested the book "be re-named as A Western History of the Middle East" but I would suggest perhaps "A Political History of the Middle East." It is definitely the view from 10,000 feet, ...

What I found after wading thru swamps in South Sudan: Read my column "Where the Soldiers Are Scarier Than the Crocodiles."
