Blake Hurst, "The Omnivore’s Delusion: Against the Agri-intellectuals," The American, July 2009. A strong defense of modern farming.
Willis G. Regier, "The Essence of War: Clausewitz as Educator," Chronicle of Higher Education, August 2009. A solid commentary on Clausewitz and some of the most important works about the Prussian military theorist. (Disclosure: I reviewed Antulio Echevarria's Clausewitz and Contemporary War for an upcoming edition of Joint Force Quarterly.)
