Most of us find the events of the last five or six years nothing short
of astounding. It is not simply that the Cold War has ended, but that it
ended so fast and with so little resistance. Already it has become difficult
to explain to students in international relations classes the attitudes
of authors who wrote just eight or ten years ago. Some of these
students were only starting college or were still in high school when
the Berlin Wall came down, and in the years prior to that, the Soviet
Union had already started its fundamental transformation. l What will
the world be like in ten more years? How will we explain the fears
and foibles of the current generation, let alone those of the generations
preceding us?
