The Duck of Minerva

The Duck Quacks at Twilight

If you’re coming here via Henry Farrell’s Chronicle of Higher Education article, take a look around and let us know what you think.

A particularly warm “hello” to any international-relations scholars who might be new here. I think it is about time to admit that we all read (at least) Daniel Drezner’s blog anyway, so maybe it is time to really get onboard with blogging :-).

Heck, the worst thing that could happen is that it fizzles out, like all those listservs many of us were on in the mid- and late-1990s.

By the way, if you write, or know of, an IR-related blog we should be reading, email me and I’ll add it to our blogroll.
