Waterloo's Legacy and other stories

Ed at Gnostical Turpitude has been busy finding interesting newspaper stories so we don't have to. A selection for historians:

A story in The Independent on the legacy of Waterloo.

A Times review of a book on 'absent-minded imperialists'.

The Washington Post (registration required) on The relationship between history and entertainment in Alexander the Great (the latest piece of Ancient Hollywood)

And while I think of it, Jason Kuznicki at Positive Liberty discusses reactions to the Alexander film, developing into a discussion of homosexuality in the ancient world, modern 'gayness' and Foucault.
