Unformatted text preview: Letter fiam the Editors The 1998 issue of the journal ofPublio and IntemationalAfiirs (IPIA) marks the ninth year of the journal ’5 publication. The journal remains the only North American scholarly publication exclusively presenting the work of graduate students from professional schools of public and international afl'airs. As such, it provides a valuable forum for interaction between students, and offers a rare opportunity for cooperative student efforts across the participating schools. For the first time ever, the journal benefited from the participation of every North American member of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA). In addition, the number of editors participating in the annual Reading Weekend was the largest in the journal ’5 history. As in the past, the quality of scholarship in the journal remains impressive. The collective body of articles reflects a wide range of pressing policy concerns, ranging from environmental and social, to diplomatic and organizational. Laude Kuhlow, Konisky, and Kojima et al. explore the integration of environmental issues into existing international mechanisms. Ferguson provides a convincing rationale for Russo-Japanese rapprochement, and its implications for U.S. foreign policy. Ronen’s comprehensive analysis lends a fresh look at the possibili— ties wind power adds to the U.S. energy equation. Baxter and Bishop offer fruitful insights into opportunties for flexible and creative international treaty formation, using Canada’s leading role in the negotiations to ban landmines as an example. Miller depicts the challenges to U.S. military preparedness in the wake of the Cold War.
