Returning After an Absence
For the past several years I have been distracted by many things, but recent events in Ukraine compel me to bring this blog back to life. In the coming weeks, I will post thoughts here about the situation. While I am not on the ground there myself, I count people who are among my friends and believe my insights will be helpful to those who are unsatisfied with the information they are getting about the unrest in Ukraine they are getting in western media. I anticipate things will be unsettled in Ukraine for a while, so that should keep the posts coming at regular intervals for a while.
I live in Woodside, NY in Western Queens and have been living here happily for two years. By training I am a specialist on Central and Eastern Europe and I also have an occasional blog on international affairs especially Central and Eastern Europe called "Lands Far Away..." If such topics inerest you, you may also want to visit New Books in East European Studies, which I also moderate. The Woodsider Insider, however, is now my main blog.
