Discontinued in 2002. Continued by Global Change, Peace & Security (1478-1158). At the time of its founding, Pacifica Review was concerned to overcome the limitations of the Cold War scholarship, but the scale and implications of the impending transformation were not yet fully apparent. The last several years have seen dramatic changes, not least the end of the Cold War, the breakup and decline of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, the widespread phenomenon of internal conflict, the expanding role of the United Nations and other international organizations, new forms of global economic and financial integration, and the remarkable economic dynamism of the Asia-Pacific region. Equally striking is the emergence of a 'macropolitical agenda' in which human rights, environment, population movements and transnational crime are moving closer to the centre stage of international affairs. The profound and diverse nature of contemporary global change raises difficult practical and theoretical questions that cut across disciplinary boundaries. Scholars and journals must therefore reposition themselves. By cultivating a multidisciplinary perspective, Pacifica Review establishes connections between local, national, international and transnational levels of organization, and between the cultural economic, ecological and geopolitical dimensions of contemporary change.
