In an overview of two books on the EU and the Eurozone crisis – one being the now ubiquitous Adults in the Room by Varoufakis, Chris Bickerton notes: Adults in the Room has a fly-on-the-wall quality that makes it a captivating read.

Dunkirk, t arrives with high praise and with comparisons with Tarkovsky amongst others, which is cultural catnip for me. But be that as it may, one of the genuine curiosities about those events in 1940 was the fact that many of the French troops taken off the beaches there were returned to France only a […]A
