WORLD NEWS LINKS: IMPORTANT STARTING PLACES
: The BBC News homepage, this site offers an introduction to the day’s top stories. Note the regional coverage in the left margin. Related items are linked in the right margin when you open up individual stories. Type search terms into the box at the upper-right for BBC News stories from the last several years. The In-Depth section provides overviews of important contemporary issues.
: An intelligent, liberal British news source.
: The home-page for a monthly news-magazine of contemporary world affairs. You need a paid subscription not only to receive the paper issues but also to access the electronic archives. I subscribe to this periodical and would consider it a moderately-priced and extremely-informative resource for the serious student of international affairs. Two excellent newsmagazines are The Economist ( )and Guardian Weekly ( ) . Both, however, cost approximately $150CAN per year. You may be able to order The Economist at a substantial discount HERE.
