Woodrow Wilson and Self-determination
I recently told my high-school history teacher about this blog, so this history post is in her honor. This piece in the London Review of Books by Pankaj Mishra is pretty interesting. Its on the relation between Woodrow Wilson's professed universal ideals and the movement to resist colonialism. Unsurprisingly, the author also writes about how these forces are still in play.
