Is BHL a Fabulist?
The problem, however, is that Lévy never in fact made it to Gori. See my new article "Reporting the Georgian War: Is Bernard-Henri Lévy a Fabulist?" on World Politics Review here.
The focus of the Transatlantic Intelligencer is European politics and the, increasingly "conflicted", relationship of Europe - or, more precisely, the leading continental European powers, France and Germany - with the United States. A principal purpose of Trans-Int will be to "overcome the language gap" - or at least some of the language gaps - preventing Americans and other English-speakers from forming an accurate assessment of European political realities. Since, however, there are also multiple "language gaps" within Europe, I hope too that Trans-Int will be of interest to European readers.
