Citizens of the world.
When the Greek philosopher Diogenes was asked what country he was from, he replied, "I am a citizen of the world." In this age of globalization, we must all be citizens of the world. At JS, we recognize that you are charged with a vital task: helping your students make sense of the world and find their rightful place in it. That's why we bring you our annual World Affairs Atlas & Almanac, filled with maps, facts, and charts to make the world come alive for you and your students. This is a reference work that you can use all year.
We begin with a look at the challenges facing the U.S. in the wake of two deadly hurricanes (see News Special, pp. 4-5). You will also find a retrospective of the United Nations as it marks its 60th anniversary (see Special, pp. 6-7). Enjoy the issue!
