Here's a sample from the issue:


COVER STORY

LIBERAL TALK, REALIST THINKING
States may cite noble aims, but their goal--whether seen through liberal or realist eyes--is the relentless pursuit of power. So argues Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer in his new book, The Tragedy of Great Power Politics (Norton). To read an excerpt:

ALSO IN THE FEBRUARY MAGAZINE

LIFESTYLES OF THE YOUNG AND STUDIOUS
The Palevsky Residential Commons and Bartlett Dining Commons opened January 2. Palevsky offers the shock of the new and the comforts of home while the retooled Bartlett Gymnasium has kept its gothic charm. http://www.alumni.uchicago.edu/magazine/0202/features/young.html

AND THE WINNING PUNCH LINE IS...
When the Magazine asked readers, How many Chicago students does it take to change a lightbulb?, the answers were illuminating. http://www.alumni.uchicago.edu/magazine/0202/features/punchline.html


OTHER NEWS FROM CHICAGO

VP FOR RESEARCH Robert Zimmer is next Brown provost
Robert Zimmer, vice president for research and for Argonne National Laboratory, will become provost of Brown University July 15. Zimmer joined the mathematics faculty in 1977.
http://chronicle.uchicago.edu/020207/zimmer.shtml

PUBLIC POLICY STUDIES names new dean
On July 1 Susan E. Mayer begins a five-year term as dean of Chicago's Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies, succeeding Robert T. Michael. Mayer is deputy director of the Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research.
http://www-news.uchicago.edu/releases/02/020124.mayer.shtml

MARRIAGE IS SUBJECT of PBS Valentine's Day Special Marriage--Just a Piece of Paper? airs nationally on Thursday, February 14 (check local listings). Co-produced by Divinity School professor Don Browning's Religion, Culture, and Family Project and narrated by Cokie Roberts, the one-hour PBS documentary has numerous Chicago connections--on camera and off (Bryan Zises, AB'90, was senior producer). For more on Browning and the project, go to: http://www.alumni.uchicago.edu/magazine/0108/research/invest-sacred.html


RESEARCH AT CHICAGO

PATER FAMILIAR? Proof that preferences can be inherited
Three U of C researchers--psychology professor Martha McClintock, human-genetics professor Carole Ober, and postdoctoral fellow Suma Jacob, AB'91, PhD'98, MD'01 (the lead investigator)--offer the first evidence that preferences can be inherited. Their study found that women prefer the scent of some men over others because of genes they have inherited from their fathers.

VIRTUAL REALITY, Renaissance-Style: Online exhibition
Devices of Wonder, an exhibition at Los Angeles's Getty Museum, drew rave reviews during its recent run. Co-curated by Chicago art historian Barbara Stafford, PhD'72, it put a new spin on "multimedia" and "virtual reality"--showing that interest in sense-enhancing and image-making technology dates back to the Renaissance. The exhibition has closed, but its Web-based cabinet of curiosities remains: http://www.getty.edu/art/exhibitions/devices/choice.html


MAROON SPORTS
THIRD-YEAR SETS U of C basketball scoring record
Derek Reich is the all-time leading scorer in 99 years of Chicago men's basketball. With 26 points over New York University Reich reached 1,409 lifetime points--surpassing the 1,406-point record held by Jerry Clark, AB'74, MBA'76. http://www.uchicago.edu/student/athletics/news/mbknyu0120.htm
