Conscience and the Military Obligation of the Citizen: A Problem in History and Ethics. Teacher and Student Manuals.
After posing the theoretical question of the state's power to conscript its citizens for military purposes, this secondary-school unit examines, in selected periods of American history, cases of citizens who have objected to conscription. The student is invited to see the changing bases of conscientious objection, and to consider the choice between conscientious objection and conscientious participation. (Author)
