Full text of Lycos review from http://www.pointcom.com/topics/InternationalPolitics_Overall.html. Here is an excerpt from the article:
A visit here is vital for anyone serious about studying America's role in the global society. The Council on Foreign Relations is a 76 year-old foreign relations think tank with over 3,300 influential members. Here you will find information on the Council's programs and activities as well as transcripts of reports and proceedings. The amount and quality of the information is superb (searching the site, we got back 36 matches for "East Europe"). The online version of "Foreign Affairs" magazine practically deserves a review of its own with a deep, searchable articles archive and annotated links to related sites. Frequently updated and packed with information, this site is a definitive example of how an organization can use the Web to foster study.
