Started at the end of 1995, at least in part to offer a different perspective from the mainstream media''s depiction of the wars and foreign intervention during the break-up of the country formerly known as Yugoslavia, Antiwar.com is a web-site which provides links to news stories and commentary with a decidedly anti-interventionist, libertarian and, as the name so obviously states, antiwar perspective. The "About Us" section says that it is a project of the Randolph Bourne Institute. Subjects are generally arranged by country or region although this is not necessarily a rule as related subjects like the Abu Ghraib prison scandal or the Weekend Review, which features links to book reviews the editors think are pertinent, have their own sections.
The clean and concise design which mirrors traditional publishing and constantly updated content make this site popular with people of many political persuasions. Primarily the work of Justin Raimondo, who goes by the title of Editorial Director and is well-known in libertarian and paleo-conservative circles as the author of three books and as a scholar through his associations with the Randolph Bourne and Ludwig Von Mises Institutes. The site has no advertising and relies on quarterly pledge drives and ongoing donations for funding.
