When others do things better than you...

I'm currently putting together the second chapter of my PhD and I've come across a particularly irksome problem: namely, finding people who have done a better job at what you're trying to achieve, writing about the same subject with far more eloquence and aplomb that I ever could manage.

It makes it really tempting to just have this as my chapter:

Chapter 2
US Foreign Policy in History
See Henry Kissinger (2002) and Charles Kupchan (2002)

Bugger.
