Ideals and Reality in Foreign Policy: American Intervention in the Caribbean. Teacher and Student Manuals.
Centering around case studies of American military intervention (1898 to 1933) in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Nicaragua, this unit invites the student to compare the results of such intervention with the foreign policy goals and ideals the interventions were intended to implement. It confronts him with the dilemma of power in international affairs, with the difficulties inherent in executing foreign policy, with the problem of misunderstanding and misinterpretation caused by differences in culture, and with the question o f the morality and the efficacy of the use of force in international problem-solving. The unit has been designed primarily for college-bound students. (See SO 000 161 for a listing of related documents.) (Author/SBE)
