It has been an arms race ever since, he said. But it reached its zenith in 2016 when both Trump and his opponent Hillary Clinton relied heavily on retired generals on the stump and also cited countless other retired senior officers as supporters. They get trotted out like stage props, Feaver said. Dempsey, who is also a trained political scientist and author of Our Army: Soldiers, Politics, and American Civil-Military Relations, passed an even harsher judgment on the deleterious effects. Retired officers running for political office would be one thing, he said, but they were trading their rank and the reputation of the military for their own partisan political opinion. They were asked to be on these lists because they have stars. It is letting the campaigns play Pokemon Go with their military service.

The book originated in a class Thiel taught at Stanford, and Blake Masters, one of his students who became his co-author, was at his side during the transition, conducting interviews with candidates for various administration posts. Also along for the ride: Michael Kratsios, Thiel’s chief of staff, and Charlie Kirk, a 23-year-old wunderkind who blew off college to start a grass-roots organization dedicated to training young conservatives in the art of persuasion — and plugging them into the right networks. Thiel’s most visible involvement in the transition came during a fleeting moment in mid-December when he organized a summit that brought some of the country’s top technology executives, from Apple’s Tim Cook to Google’s Larry Page to Trump Tower for a meeting with the president-elect. Cameras captured him entering the gold-paneled elevators in the lobby, and, shortly thereafter, Trump gently petting his hand as the tech executives and a slew of reporters looked on in astonishment.

That has only fortified a pervasive sense of victimhood in her mind, friends said. Chelsea Clinton, meanwhile, is still serving as vice chair of the family foundation, and promoting a new academic book, co-written with global health professor Devi Sridhar, calledGoverning Global Health.” She is also an adjunct professor at Columbia University. But she is also considering a future that is not necessarily tied so closely to her parents’ work. Her bio on Twitter identifies her as a mother, wife, advocate, author, teacher and New Yorker—everything but the label that most of the world identifies her with: daughter. There’s an understanding among people close to the Clintons that Chelsea needs to figure out what the next chapter is. Stepping out with more personality and verve on Twitter, people close to the Clintons said, is a way to dip her toes into public life.

In 1959, a 19-year-old undergraduate tried to write a novel, as 19-year-olds with ambitions to be writers are wont to do. The next year, the 20-year-old had his novel published by Viking, a major press—which happens to many fewer of those would-be writers. Reviewed in the New York Times , the Los Angeles Times , and the Chicago Daily Tribune , the book was received fairly well. The consensus seemed to be that it was clever, charming, and slight. Still, given the author's age, the novel promised great things. If a young man could write this at 19, what wonderful things would he write at 30? The author, in case you haven't already guessed, was a young New Yorker named Peter S. Beagle. The novel was A Fine and Private Place , and, if anything, the reviewers underrated it. Charm has always been Beagle's besetting vice, but in A Fine and Private Place his pursuit of charm served a purpose, drawing the reader into genuine fondness for the ghost-seeing, cemetery-dwelling Jonathan Rebeck—together with the cynical raven who steals food for him and Mrs.
