    April 19, 2012

    Great empires, such as the Roman and British, were extractive. The empires succeeded because the value of the resources and wealth extracted from conquered lands exceeded the value of conquest and governance. The reason Rome did not extend its empire east into Germany was not the military prowess of Germanic tribes but Rome's calculation that the cost of conquest exceeded the value of extractable resources.

    Dr. Rajendra Kale, who recently ended his position as interim editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, has gone out with a bang.

  • Good for Guenter Grass! Stuart Littlewood
    April 18, 2012

    I can't say I'm crazy about the German Nobel laureate's poetry. Much is lost in translation, of course. But the sentiment expressed in "What must be said" is spot-on.
