Welcome letter of Sept. 22, 2008

I hope this finds you well.

I'm doing a lot of work these days promoting my new book: Re-engage! America and the World After Bush.  Go to the book's website there for a lot more information, including on how to buy the book, book events I'll be doing, etc.

Also, go to my big, recently redesigned Just World News blog for my latest writings and all kinds of information about my past work.

Apart from the book promotion, I am currently spending most of each workweek-- when I'm not traveling-- in Washington, DC, and most weekends back home in Charlottesville, VA. 

Given how mobile I am, contacting me by email is the best way.  Or you can use my cellphone, if you know the number.  Snail-mail should still be sent to our family home in Charlottesville, Va.

I am really excited to be able to catch up with old friends here in DC, and to "re-engage" with the policy world here at a time of such change and promise on war-to-peace issues.  (Go, Obama!) And I'm really happy to be able to do this in the context of my part-time affiliation with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, with whom I carry the distinguished title of Friend in Washington.

In the May/June2008  issue of Boston Review I had a slightly long analytical piece titled Breakout: Hamas and the end of the two-state solution.  Over the past years I have amassed quite a lot of writings about Hamas-- on the blog and in various print media.  So now I've constructed a portal page to most of those writing, which is here.  You can find that link and links to a number of other handy portal pages up near the top of the sidebar on my Just World News blog.

I am still contributing fairly frequent-- though no longer regularly scheduled-- contributions on global issues to The Christian Science Monitor. You can access those here.

Do please also explore this present web-site as much as you want.  Buttons to access its content are on the left.  

And stay well--  Helena.

This web-site will always be a work in progress.  Please send any comments you have (or, if I know you, your news, which I always love getting) to Helena Cobban , web-meistress.
