Review

Can’t we do better?

‘Soundings’ gets down to the nitty gritty of opposition; ‘Czas Kultury’ says LGBT+ in Poland has lost its way; ‘Dublin Review of Books’ reflects on Trumpian neediness and British moralism; ‘dérive’ examines informality in Vienna, Belgrade and Paris; ‘Atlas’ considers religious atheists, social outcasts and a cause without rebels; and ‘New Literary Observer’ closes in on Franco Moretti’s distant reading.

Where do you stand on Europe?

‘Blätter’ predicts a politicization of the Europe question; ‘Merkur’ argues that dominant theories of populism reaffirm liberal certainties; ‘Samtiden’ looks at tensions in Norway between town and country; ‘Host’ discusses women’s role in Charter ’77; and ‘Res Publica Nowa’ returns to the political life and thought of Leszek Kołakowski.

The greatest gift of all

‘New Eastern Europe’ wonders whether Putin is bored; ‘Osteuropa’ recognizes the unfinished work of Arseny Roginsky; ‘Kultūros barai’ celebrates the Lithuanian miracle; ‘Varlik’ regrets the Islamization of Istanbul; ‘Esprit’ calls for more democracy at work; and ‘Syn og Segn’ talks about men, women and children.
