Hiding in plain sight throughout America are historic, highly private women’s self-education groups. These clubs are fascinating survivors from an era following the Civil War when women... More > couldn’t apply to most colleges and were told they shouldn’t leave the home. In their earliest days, the study groups also contributed to the welfare of their towns - often by helping to found their town’s first library-and served to get women out of the house and into the world.

In Smart Women, author Ann Dodds Costello discusses her four-year quest to locate, often visit, and describe today’s 100-year-old, all-women study clubs, all over America, even though they do not publicize and have no central organization or knowledge of each other.

Remarkably ambitious in its audacity and scope, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) irregular warfare and “nation-building” mission in Afghanistan has struggled to meet... More > its nonmilitary objectives by most tangible measures. Put directly, the alliance and its partners have fallen short of achieving the results needed to create a stable, secure, democratic, and self-sustaining Afghan nation, a particularly daunting proposition given Afghanistan’s history and culture, the region’s contemporary circumstances, and the fact that no such country has existed there before.
