Weekly Roundup - 4/24/23

This week: From the Rest issue, managing editor Nathan Goldman introduces “A Fatal Disease,” a previously unpublished story by Susan Taubes. Malcolm Harris interviews How to Blow Up a Pipeline director Daniel Goldhaber about eco-terrorism, the risks of adaptation, and left-wing cinema’s aspirational imperative. Editor-at-large Peter Beinart contends with the possibility of another Nakba. And contributing writer Christopher Blackwell introduces “In the Hole,” a composite narrative about solitary confinement and its long-lasting effects, featuring contributions from Aaron Edward Olson, Antoine Davis, Raymond Williams, and Jonathan Kirkpatrick. Plus, culture editor Claire Schwartz introduces Kim Hyesoon’s poem, “Pointed Handwriting.”

From the newsletter, senior reporter Alex Kane talks with the legendary Amira Hass, Haaretz’s longtime West Bank correspondent, about the potential of the Israeli protest movement, Palestinian armed resistance, and how she manages to maintain her sense of outrage.
