[Note from the bartender. If you're not familiar with WW3 co-founder Peter Kuper's bracing work, it truly is what is called "important." Not only is it ideologically challenging, but it's gorgeous to boot. We published Peter's one and only monograph, Speechless, about a decade ago, and it is still a masterpiece to this day.]
