The Ultimate Weapon is No Weapon: human security and the new rules of war and peace

He’s the guy who walked across Afghanistan in late 2001, diplomated (verb) in Iraq in August 2003, taught at Harvard, and successfully ran for Parliament all before reaching his Bartolo Colón year (the age of 40). Apparently, while he was campaigning up in Penrith and The Border (his constituency) in the run up to the May 6 election, he was still grading his students’ papers from Harvard.

There’s a more thorough profile here with this GEM:

“Not only is there a new job in academia but also the movies. Hollywood has started to speak Stewart’s name and after Brad Pitt bought the rights to his life, Orlando Bloom is due to portray the young ‘adventurer’. Jokingly he says he’d really like Judi Dench to play him.”

Brad Pitt once tried to buy the rights to the HD’s life, but the HD’s agent doesn’t answer calls unless interested parties are offering at least eight digit figures.
