Back to your seats

AN INTENSE political deadlock, played out against a backdrop of protests and deadly state violence, has come to an end. For nearly a year Cambodia’s national assembly was without an opposition; struggle in the streets had replaced normal politics ... [Published Banyan - The Economist - Jul 24 2014]

A new kind of president

What good will come of it?

Abe meets abductees' families THERE is a calm dignity about Shigeru and Sakie Yokota, the parents of Megumi, who was kidnapped in 1977, aged 13, by North Korean agents while on her way home from school.

How the big rig rolls

A SEA monster, it seems, can disappear just as quickly as it emerges. Choppy waters and anxious bystanders take more time to settle. On July 16th relations between Vietnam and China took another dramatic turn when a Chinese state-owned company announced ... [Published Banyan - The Economist - Jul 17 2014]

Glad-handled

THERE was a lot to like about the two-day visit that America’s secretary of state, John Kerry, made to Kabul at the weekend.

The people concerned

Amit Shah rises

VICTORY in politics can come in bursts, as with a triumphal election. Or it can be the result of the steady accretion of power, winning over institutions and shunting aside rivals. The rise of 49-year-old Amit Shah as the youngest-ever president of ... [Published Banyan - The Economist - Jul 09 2014]
