The movement's renowned founding fathers are history--Nehru of India, Nasser of Egypt, Tito of Yugoslavia. So is its primary cause: to avoid dominance by one side or the other in the Cold War rivalry between East and West, Moscow and Washington. As that rivalry fades into the past, the very name of the Nonaligned Movement of nations seems to make little sense anymore.

The world seemed to be sliding inexorably toward violent confrontation, if not nuclear disaster, that day in 1961 when the leaders of Egypt, Yugoslavia and India declared themselves officially out of the running of the Cold War, laying the groundwork for a network of nations that would be neither of the East nor of the West. The Berlin Crisis threatened superpower confrontation in the middle of Europe; an ill-fated U.S.

The Warsaw Pact is history, and NATO may take in some of its former East European foes. The end of U.S.-Soviet rivalry has left the 101 nations of the Non-Aligned Movement with virtually nothing to be "non-aligned" against.
