For over 30 years, former Harvard professor, award-winning author, and member of the Canadian Parliament Michael Ignatieff has been writing for TNR. And as of today, he's the leading candidate to take the reins of Canada's Liberal Party, which would put him in line to possibly become the next Prime Minister. It seems like a good time, then, to review some of his magazine pieces from over the years:
