Massaging the writer's ego

In "Blätter", Katajun Amirpur discerns a fatal resonance between fundamentalists and critics of Islam; "Index on Censorship" marks 800 years since the signing of the Magna Carta; "Krytyka" publishes Stephen Velychenko's open letter to Oliver Stone; "New Eastern Europe" asks, is all quiet on the Baltic front? "L'Espill" looks at the success of microlocal politics in Catalonia; "Il Mulino" slams fast fashion; "Dialogi" insists that the class struggle never left town; "Esprit" takes a course in biopolitics; "Samtiden" tries to pin down a zeitgeist between war and crisis; and "Host" launches a new online journal but won't give up on print just yet.
