"Reflections of a Ravaged Century," by Robert Conquest. W.W. Norton. 317 pages. $26.95.In his latest book, eminent British historian Robert Conquest, the current Senior Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, presents a 342-page editorial that maps out conservative positions on literally dozens of contemporary issues. While provocative and always readable, he only occasionally bothers to cite sources or engage in serious historical analysis.Conquest's central point is that modern history has been plagued by totalistic ideologies, starting with the French Revolution, and achieving their most hideous form in 20th century National Socialism, to which he briefly alludes, and communism, with which he is preoccupied.

NEW YORK - Donald Trump began NASCAR's day yesterday with a little joke. "I could say fire your engines!" said the star of The Apprentice, the reality TV show on which he has made the phrase, "You're fired!" famous. "But I won't." Instead, Trump gave the traditional command for "Gentlemen, start your engines," and the top 10 drivers in the Nextel Cup season pushed the buttons that started their race cars' motors in Times Square. Thousands lined the streets, blocked off by police, as the cars followed a set route to the NASCAR offices on Park Avenue.

ConQuest catches Motorola's attentionConQuest Software Inc., a 4-year-old Columbia company that produces a full-text search and retrieval system, has caught the financial interest of a subsidiary of giant Motorola Inc.The recent investment will lead to ConQuest's software being incorporated into several of INFO Enterprises Inc.'s on-line information services.Unlike many other search packages, which rely strictly on finding documents containing specific words, ConQuest's approach involves drawing on a "semantic network" -- 335,000 terms drawn from dictionaries, thesauri and other reference sources, all tied together by 3 million word links.

MIKE LANE'S cartoon depicting the British imperial lion losing its last tooth with the transfer of Hong Kong back to China reflects the historical antagonism to empire shared by many Americans.But we should not forget that America owes its inception in part to the imperial ethic -- which in its purest form was not primarily about commercial exploitation or nationalistic expansion, but embodied a missionary zeal to extend the blessings of Christianity and civilization to the non-Western world.

Stop AtrocitiesConcerning Bosnia-Herzegovina: I am not inclined toward military solutions where political solutions are possible, but for the first time in my life, I would favor U.S. intervention in force in a foreign country.It seems to me that an acceptable political solution is not possible in Bosnia, and that allowing the Serbs to consolidate their conquest-by-atrocity is not only unconscionable, but very dangerous.Morally, what is happening is altogether too much like what happened in Nazi Germany.

PARIS - Guillermo Coria, David Nalbandian, Juan Ignacio Chela, Gaston Gaudio. There was adequate warning before the first ball was struck a week ago that the time had come for the Grand Slam-starved Argentines to overtake the Spanish at the French Open. It's now close to happening and, though there are still a few matches to reach the final four, it's possible there could be an all-Argentine semifinal with Nalbandian vs. Gaudio in the upper half of the draw and Coria playing Chela in the lower half.

"What is a stylus?" asked the store clerk at Best Buy in Timonium. The words cut like a diamond. But he knew no better and meant no harm. To his credit, though, the young clerk did direct me to a lonely shelf, where my betrothed did wait for me. Turntables don't rate a whole aisle. It's just a shelf, stocked with two boxes of Sony turntables. I bought me one. Pathetic, perfect. In 2002, this is what happens when you buy a turntable: Clerks don't help you carry it out, and they don't even want to chitchat about it. They seem robbed of any sense of a conquest -- as if buying a turntable doesn't really count as a sale.

WASHINGTON - Maryland had a tenuous six-point lead with just under seven minutes left, when Byron Mouton reminded everyone that basketball is just a game. After he made a steal in front of the George Washington bench, Mouton's momentum took him atop the scorer's table, where he took an impromptu stroll. "I would have been surprised if anyone else had done that," Terps coach Gary Williams said. "Instead, you say `that's just Byron.' " When Mouton left Tulane and transferred to Maryland in the summer of 1999, Williams knew that the Terps were getting a creative, athletic slasher.

"Boomerang," Eddie Murphy's new movie, illustrates a profound principle of aerodynamic mechanics -- that phenomena tend to reiterate orbital patterns in low-yield gravitational fields.Or, what goes round, comes round, Jack.That not only describes the plot line but may be a fair evocation of Murphy's career: Unless I miss my guess (known to happen), this joyous, funny movie ought to rescue his reputation from the shame he himself inflicted on it, with two dreary movies in a row, "Another 48 Hours" and the despicable, sexist, hyper-violent "Harlem Nights."
