In each monthly issue of Origins, an academic expert will analyze a particular current issue, political, cultural, or social, in a larger, deeper context. In addition to the analysis provided by each month's feature, Origins will also include images, maps, graphs and other material to compliment the essay. We hope that Origins will help you understand the world more fully, and that it will prompt you to think, debate, and learn. The final goal of Origins is to make us all more informed, engaged citizens. As the American philosopher John Dewey wrote, History which is not brought down close to the actual scene of events leaves a gap. We hope Origins will help fill that gap, and we hope you enjoy what you find.
