An AnnouncementIssue: Summer 2001
This issue of The National Interest marks the beginning of a new era in the life of the magazine. A new era that will be continuous with the old-that must be emphasized. But, after sixteen years, it is not surprising that there will be changes:
-Owen Harries, the founding Editor, is retiring and will be leaving in June to return to Australia, whence he came. The National Interest has been "his" magazine to the degree it has been anyone's, and his departure is painful to us all. The pain,however, will be assuaged by his remaining our Editor Emeritus and an active Consulting Editor.
