Things to keep in mind It is crucial, to stay on top of this class, to read the news. So please do so, choose a national newspaper in English, Spanish, Swahili or Italian and try to glance at it every day. A list of possible newspaper is available on the syllabus I distributed on Monday Class ends at 3:15 and not 3:00, so please do not start packing your stuff until 3:12. Thank you. Please do add the class on Moodle. The correct code is 2 bolg. The address for Moodle is: http://moodle.id.ucsb.edu Two of the readings assigned for today, Alvin So and Appelbaum/Henderson are posted on the board next to my office. Please come and make copies of them. I will also include in the reader that will be available next week.

In the News This Week NATO stands for North Atlantic Treaty Organization and it’s a military alliance established in 1949. Its goals were to provide its members a system of mutual defense in case of attack from an external party. It originated from WWII and the subsequent Cold War (Its antithesis was the Warsaw Pact). It originally included Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, the UK, Canada, the US, Italy Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Greece, Turkey, West Germany and Spain. Nato did not participate in any conflict until 1994 when it intervened in Bosnia in the Yugoslav war. After that it intervened in Kosovo and, now Afghanistan. After the end of the Cold War Nato changed its missions and strategies and came to include many former Communist countries: in 1999 Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Poland joined, followed in 2004 by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, and Romania.
