E-Resource: World Conflicts Today
World Conflicts Today. This new electronic resource gathers together current news and historical information on ten of the world's hotspots, such as Iraq, Darfur, Chechnya, Korean Peninsula, and the Basque Country. Unlike most free internet sites, these reports were developed independent of any narrow political agenda. The intent was to represent all the sides involved in the conflicts fairly. Minor updates are added about every four to six weeks, and substantive revisions are made as needed when the conflict situation changes.
