Gorbachev: A Portrait

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

In contemporary history, few people arouse so many conflicting opinions as Mikhail Gorbachev. Some extol him as the man who saved the world from nuclear apocalypse and also as the man who gave freedom to the peoples of the former USSR and Eastern Europe. Others, however, especially in Russia, regard him as the man who destroyed, not only a great state, but also the lives of countless citizens, who were reduced to misery by the reforms he introduced, or even...

Educational Poverty and the Future of Education

By: Stefano Del Bove, SJ

Autumn is a time of extraordinary importance, given the resumption of school activities. The summer months seem a distant memory.

By: Roland Meynet, SJ

One of the best means to better define a reality and make its characteristics stand out is to compare it with another reality, even at the cost of making the features appear harsher and forcing the contrast a little.

Slavery and its Aftermath

By: Patrick J. Ryan, SJ

Over three decades ago, I lived in a Jesuit house in Ghana overlooking the Atlantic and the fishing port of Moree. From that house, I could see a 1612 Dutch trading post called Fort Nassau that takes its name from the House of Orange-Nassau, the royal family of the Netherlands.
