Readings of Note…
For your random Thursday reading…
- Armor or speed?
- Steve Prefontaine’s last run…
- The NYRB’s Orson Welles-at-100 series is worth your time.
- Interesting article from 1990 on how the MiG-29 Fulcrum and the Su-27 Flanker fit into Soviet air superiority planning.
- Don’t worship at the altar of Andrew Marshall.
- The Eagle and the Dragon: Globalization and European Dreams of Conquest in China and America in the Sixteenth Century looks at the relationship between European penetration into Asia, and European conquest of the Americas. Sounds interesting.
Also, I got John Scalzi to yell at me:
