If the events in Ukraine are to appear as more than a series of disconnected events, you really must take the long view. So if you want to understand why it looked last night as though war was about to break out in the Crimea, perhaps take a look at this piece of analysis by Stratfor. It's a company that focuses on geography and history to explain what is happening in the world. Stratfor makes its money by signing up paying subscribers, but makes some of its work freely available. The book from which this is taken, The next hundred years, is also worth reading.
Before you all go away for holidays before graduation, please return your kit to me either today (thurs 14th june) or next wednesday (20th june).
Do not return them via other members of staff - we need to check everything together thoroughly. Thank you, Gerardo.
