Leaving his Marx


The Russian traveller Pavel Annenkov first came across Karl Marx in Brussels in the mid-1840s when Marx was in his late twenties. Already the impression he made was indelible:With a thick mop of black hair on his head, his hairy hands, dressed in a coat buttoned diagonally across his chest, he maintained the appearance of a man with the right and authority to command respect, whatever guise he took and whatever he did. All his motions were awkward but vigorous and self-confident, all his manners ran athwart conventional usages in social intercourse, but were proud and somehow guarded, and his shrill voice with its metallic ring marvellously suited the radical pronouncements over things and people which he uttered . . . . Before me stood the figure of the democratic dictator incarnate.Nearly thirty years later, another Russian émigré, Mikhail Bakunin (one of the few men whom Marx…

 War on Doctors: The Deadly Business of War-Zone Medical Care

With governments bombing hospitals and militias attacking medical staff, the work of Doctors without Borders is in jeopardy. Rules to protect aid workers in war zones are increasingly being ignored.Dr. Muhamed brought the baby girl into the world in the midst of a war zone in southern Syria. A few hours later, his hospital lay in ruins.The baby’s tiny head shimmered, she blinked her eyes and her first cry sounded light but strong. It was a difficult birth and the mother needed blood from the rare O-negative group. Dr. Muhamed issued a call for blood donors at his city’s mosque — and that was when the catastrophe began.Their rotors pounding loudly, helicopters approached the hospital that evening and the first barrel bombs struck the operating room, injuring dozens of patients. The call for blood donations had led the Syrian regime to believe that a large number of enemy rebels was being treated in Muhamed’s hospital.
