Rosa Brooks on "How to be a Foreign Policy Genius in 7 Minutes"
My students by now must be bored out of their minds by my constant refrain about professionals do's and don'ts, the stuff they need to do to be a good academic. Many of these points are basic common sense, but often forgotten or ignored. I just saw that Rosa Brooks has a nice essay on the Foreign Policy blog on "How to be a Foreign Policy Genius in 7 Minutes", which makes many of these points. I don't know about 7 minutes; I think she meant more 7 steps. Nevertheless, good advice for anyone wanting to be an IR scholar.
