Given the scope of MacFarquhar’s work, which, until recently has been barely political, it is safe to assume that this is a trustworthy source. In several interviews she’s alluded to being on an intellectual quest, and it shows in the topics she seems to be choosing. Unfortunately, very little can be found, thus far, on MacFarquhar.
