A reminder that can sign up to receive Informed Comment by email if you don’t like to read on the web. Tell your friends– this is a side of the site that I would like to build up (at any one time about 1,000 readers get the postings this way, but the subscription list does not seem to grow beyond that number.)
And remember that mynew book, Napoleon’s Egypt: Invading the Middle East is the perfect Christmas present for that friend or relative who seems so hard to shop for.
