But what you can do is checkout Foreign Policy Digest, an online journal dedicated to explaining international affairs and global developments to the digital media generation.

The articles are short (you can finish the entire newsletter in half the time it takes to read Section A of the New York Times), yet informative, and each one is written by a regional expert.
So take a minute and visit Foreign Policy Digest at www.foreignpolicydigest.org
