Tatiana Zhurzhenko

From borderlands to bloodlands

With Russia's annexation of Crimea and the military conflict in eastern Ukraine, the era of post-Soviet tolerance of blurred identities and multiple loyalties has ended. Borderlands, writes Tatiana Zhurzhenko, have once again turned into bloodlands. [ more ]

Independence in an age of interdependence

"Soundings" is on tenterhooks about the outcome of the referendum in Scotland; "Krytyka" listens to the music and politics of the Maidan; "Osteuropa" debunks both Putin's ratings and western sanctions against Russia; "New Eastern Europe" looks to Moldova to buck the trend in Russian aggression; "Index" marks 25 years since the Wall came down; in "Belgrade Journal", Gil Anidjar asks if the floodings in the Balkans are a natural or political disaster; "Free Speech Debate" questions the West's supply of digital weaponry to repressive regimes; "Dilema veche" seeks to exit the direct route from 9/11 back into the Middle Ages; and "Letras Libres" speaks to Colombian novelist Juan Gabriel Vásquez.

Dublin Review of Books
Share |


The Dublin Review of Books is a free online journal of ideas, appearing quarterly. It publishes chiefly review-essays ("long-form" essays, generally from 3,000 to 6,000 words), which in most but not all cases are tied to recently published books, usually but not always in English. Its particular interests and strengths lie chiefly in literature and history, but it also publishes in the fields of politics, economics, sociology, music, visual arts and science. Many, perhaps most, of the review's contributors are university teachers, but it sees itself not so much as an academic review as a bridge between the academy and a wider readership of intelligent citizens. In general, between a third and a half of its content is related to Ireland and Irish questions. Otherwise, the review takes a very strong interest in Europe, its literary and cultural heritage, its turbulent twentieth century history, and the future of its institutions and forms of government.

Tom Hennigan

The modernist moment

Urban politics in Brazil

Brazil may be a favourite to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup. But the tournament failed to be the host country's game-changer, writes Tom Hennigan. As triumphs of the tropical modernist movement are swamped by new development, the dismal quality of urban life remains a sore point. [more]

Tim Groenland

Lost in the funhouse

Like Joyce's "Ulysses", Nabokov's "Lolita" was once smuggled through customs in suitcases. Tim Groenland tells the unlikely story of how Nabokov's classic ever came to be published in the first place and then go on to become a commercial success. [Slovenian version added] [more]

Enda O'Doherty

Does European culture exist?

The deep historical roots of European culture may not lie in the geographical and political entity of today's Europe. But it is precisely here that the feeling of belonging inspired by the best that has been thought and said (and sung and painted and danced) needs cultivating, argues Enda O'Doherty. [Spanish version added] [more]

Enda O'Doherty

The beautiful German language

With German-bashing now firmly established as a European "Volkssport", "Dublin Review of Books" editor Enda O'Doherty turns to the semi-barbarous German language; and finds that in the right hands, or expressed through the right vocal cords, German is indeed a very beautiful language. [more]

Enda O'Doherty

Tickled to death

The Leveson Enquiry into the UK hacking scandal is drawing to a close, yet the future of a new press regulatory body remains controversial. Enda O'Doherty asks what the enquiry's findings mean for a definition of journalistic standards and the proper relation between politics and media. [more]

Getting better

Conventional wisdom has it that violence is as prevalent today as it has ever been. Yet a vast body of evidence shows that the chances of an inhabitant of this planet dying violently have never been lower, writes Dan O'Brien, reviewing two new books on the history of violence. [more]

Get smart

Ireland and the euro crisis

Ireland, like other small EU member-states, must be especially smart in responding to the euro crisis, since it does not command the resources that better enable larger states to protect their interests. How coherent has the Irish approach been so far and are the alternatives more convincing? [Hungarian version added] [more]

Britain flouts the European Court of Justice

http://www.eurozine.com/blog/
The UK has passed legislation on data retention that flouts European concerns about privacy. The move demonstrates extraordinary arrogance not only towards the Court of Justice of the European Union but towards the principle of parliamentary deliberation in Britain, writes Simon Garnett. [more]

Civil disobedience for an age of total surveillance
The case of Edward Snowden

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-04-18-scheuerman-en.html
Earlier civil disobedients hinted at our increasingly global condition. Snowden takes it as a given. But, writes William E. Scheuerman, in lieu of an independent global legal system in which Snowden could defend his legal claims, the Obama administration should treat him with clemency. [more]

Olga Tokarczuk
A finger pointing at the moon

http://www.eurozine.com/articles/2014-01-16-tokarczuk-en.html
Our language is our literary destiny, writes Olga Tokarczuk. And "minority" languages provide a special kind of sanctuary too, inaccessible to the rest of the world. But, there again, language is at its most powerful when it reaches beyond itself and starts to create an alternative world. [more]
