In the cover story, “Think Again: Israel,” Gershom Gorenberg exposes the biggest myths surrouding his country’s founding and its present predicament. He takes the radical position that Israel should be treated as a real country with real problems. His argument is sure to challenge the deeply held assumptions of Israel’s supporters and opponents alike.

In “When China Met Africa,” French author Serge Michel looks at China’s much-publicized forays onto the continent and finds that “it is beginning to run into the same obstacles the West has faced for years.” Richard Lacayo examines why leading architects like Rem Koolhass and Norman Foster are doing some of the most innovative work for the world’s least democratic regimes in “The Architecture of Autocracy.” And Joseph Cirincione wonders why the United States is spending more each year to combat a threat that is disappearing in “The Incredible Shrinking Missile Threat.”
