CW editorial note - 28 January 2013

Debating the modern world

Debating the modern world

CW opens 2013 with Sam Burt reviewing Pankaj Mishra’s From the Ruins of Empire, raising questions about what modernity means for the West as much as for the East. Nicky Charlish welcomes Jonathan Meades’ unschooled view of contemporary architecture and more in Museums Without Walls, and Robert Latona admires a belated account of the adolescent trauma of Simon Gough.

Meanwhile, Ed Noel argues that state school pupils are more than capable of debating, but that it shouldn’t be reduced to yet another ‘skill’ to bolster their CVs.
