Lenox native James Brooke has traveled to about 100 countries reporting for The New York Times, Bloomberg and Voice of America.

Columnist James Brooke writes: "Clipping the wings of Himars rocket launchers sent to Ukraine, the Biden administration made hardware and software fixes to prevent rockets from reaching Russia. American officials apparently forgot that in the Soviet era, Ukrainian engineers designed and built intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting New York."

Columnist James Brooke writes: "Many people know about the Holodomor, or death by hunger. From 1932-33, the Kremlin carried out an artificial famine that killed about four million Ukrainians. Now, with the first snows falling, Ukrainians face a new threat — 'Kholodomor,' or death by cold."

Eagle columnist James Brooke writes: "After a razor-thin victory of less than two percentage points, Brazil’s veteran left-wing politician Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will become president on Jan. 1 of a country deeply cut by a left-right divide. But for Brazil, an increasingly mercantilist nation, foreign policy debates stop at the warm waters of the South Atlantic."
