The Friday Five is a new project by Realpolitik designed to help readers catch up on the important news of the week. Every Friday, we will post five articles about current events that we find important, with brief descriptions of the various works. We hope that you will post this and other editions of the Friday Five on Facebook or Twitter, or if you follow us by e-mail, you could forward the list of articles to your friends! By doing so, you will help raise awareness about important news items, while at the same time boosting the viewership of Realpolitik. We hope to find articles that offer original insight on a current event, but we also want to give you news tips of stories that haven’t yet become breaking news. So, we hope you’ll enjoy the second-ever edition of Realpolitik’s Friday Five!
