July/August 2014 Volume 93, Number 4 ´´What Really Happened in Iran´´, by Ray Takeyh: Conventional wisdom about the 1953 coup in Iran rests on the myth that the CIA toppled the country´s democratically elected prime minister. In reality, the coup was primarily a domestic Iranian affair, and the CIA´s impact was ultimately insignificant. ´´What Really Happened in Congo´´, by Stephen R.

Gary Bass´ new book spotlights the ´´significant complicity´´ of U.S. President Richard Nixon and his national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, in this ´´forgotten genocide´´. Essays: ´´New World Order´´: Erik Brynjolfsson, Andrew McAfee, and Michael Spence. Machines are substituting for more types of human labor than ever before.
