DEAL WITH THE DEVIL
In 1973, a brash young would-be developer from Queens met one of New York’s premier power brokers: Roy Cohn, whose name is still synonymous with the rise of McCarthyism and its dark political arts. At 27, Donald Trump took the ruthless attorney as his sometime guide, learning many of the tactics that would inexplicably propel him to the White House. MARIE BRENNER untangles the symbiosis that bound them until Cohn’s death from AIDS in 1986

THE TROUBLE WITH ANDREW
In the royal-wedding afterglow, Buckingham Palace still has a major P.R. problem: how to handle Prince Andrew, Britain’s trade ambassador and fourth in line to the throne. The prince’s dissolute lifestyle, links to unsavory foreign potentates, and friendship with the American registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are undercutting the Queen’s efforts to rehabilitate the monarchy. And while many blame Andrew’s problems on his perennially broke ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, EDWARD KLEIN discovers some insiders pointing to another woman—his mother herself

Features MAY 2006
WHILE WASHINGTON SLEPT
The Queen of England is afraid. International C.E.O.'s are nervous. And the scientific establishment is loud and clear. If global warming isn't halted, devastating sea-level rises will be inevitable by 2100. So how did this virtual certainty get labeled a "liberal hoax" in the U.S.? Try the same tactics Big Tobacco used to deny the dangers of smoking. As businesses, governments, and climatologists around the globe call for action, MARK HERTSGAARD reveals exactly how serious the threat has become—and who persuaded the American people there is no crisis

Crucible of Earth's ecological future, the Amazon generates 20 percent of the planet's oxygen, contains 15 to 20 percent of its life-forms, and covers 2,722,000 square miles in nine countries. But global warming and deforestation, which clears 7,500 square miles of rain forest a year, are dehydrating the basin and threatening all the life within it. Amid a vast, stunningly diverse menagerie—glowing blue fungi, rapacious pink dolphins, a rare harpy eagle—ALEX SHOUMATOFF encounters brutal warnings that Amazonia is in meltdown

EXTREME OXFORD
In the late 70s, a group of mostly Oxford University students formed the Dangerous Sports Club, dedicated to formal dress, abundant champagne, and such imaginatively insane stunts as sending a grand piano down the slopes of Saint-Moritz and skateboarding with the bulls in Pamplona. Led by the charismatic David Kirke, they pioneered hang gliding, invented bungee jumping, and prefigured the craze for extreme sports. Now, with a former D.S.C. member facing trial for manslaughter in the death of a freshman flung from a catapult, BRETT MARTIN explores the club's daredevil legacy
