If you want to know even more about how the Alliance came to be, read Tides of Darkness by Aaron Rosenberg. It is an amazing book chock full of lore :)

Agreed, the books are amazing sources of lore, and unless a newer source in the game says something otherwise then they are canon.

I want to say Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness the game itself wouldn't be bad to check out too for those that have the option, but due to allowing the option for both Alliance and Horde being able to win, it does have certain missions on both sides that made the official lore with others not so much, muddying up the waters for people wondering what is official or not. At the very least, you can read the manual, which does give some insight into the different nations of the alliance and clans of the horde.

Sad at no edit comment button. Just wanted to add/clarify, you can read all the important chunks of the manual over at wowwiki.com last time I checked. I'm quite aware that few have access to the game these days, much less the actual manual still.
