Provoked Book Update

by | Jun 7, 2024

As many of you know, I’m working on a book called Provoked: How Washington Started the New Cold War with Russia and the Catastrophe in Ukraine.

You may also know that it’s way overlong and way overdue.

Well, the news is that I got it up to 1,400 pages, and more than 5,100 footnotes and have now mostly ceased research and am finally focusing on the writing and the editing.

I shrank the footnote font size to 7. That seemed to save me about 40 pages. And I deleted all the appendices. I’m now changing every blockquote to the regular kind, though it does not seem to be saving me as much space as I had hoped.

Anyway, it’s going to take until the end of the year to actually get the thing out, I’m sure, but rest assured, I am working on it…

Support the Institute today.
