NR and NRO Meet C-SPAN

In the next few days, our senior editor Jay Nordlinger will appear on the C-SPAN program After Words. He is interviewed by the Wall Street Journal’s Matt Murray about his new book Peace, They Say: A History of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Most Famous and Controversial Prize in the World. You can get the book directly from NR, here. Ask for a signature and an inscription, if you like. The C-SPAN interview will air on Saturday at 10 p.m. Eastern and on Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern. It will be repeated a few more times — for a schedule, go here.

On the back of the book are blurbs from four leading historians:

“Jay Nordlinger is one of America’s most versatile and pungent writers.” — Paul Johnson, author of Modern Times, etc.

“Nordlinger offers a unique combination of depth and accuracy of knowledge with clarity and elegance of style. It is a pleasure to read sophistication without affectation.” — Bernard Lewis, Princeton University

“Few writers are well qualified to write about the world’s cultures, and none more so than Jay Nordlinger. His fascinating history of the Nobel Peace Prize is deeply researched and wittily rendered — like a crowd of contradictory characters in a Shakespeare tragedy? comedy?” — Robert Conquest, author of The Great Terror, etc.

“Jay Nordlinger’s book is an authoritative and fair account of the most controversial of the Nobel prizes. Very readable, it sets the picture straight.” — Richard Pipes, Harvard University

NRO Staff — Members of the National Review Online editorial and operational teams are included under the umbrella “NR Staff.”

What Is Impeachment For?

W hat is impeachment for? Seems like a simple question. Constitutionally speaking, it also appears to have a simple answer: to cite and remove from power a president guilty of wrongdoing. Aye, there’s the rub. What sort of wrongdoing warrants removal from power? I’d wager that the flames of ... Read More
