Learning Packages in International Relations. Learning Package Four: Comparative Foreign Policy Analysis Materials.
McGowan, Patrick J.; O'Leary, Michael K.
The materials in this learning package are designed for upper division college students or beginning graduate students introducing them to the comparative study of foreign policy. Emphasis is upon analysis of internal and external "causes" of the foreign policy behavior of contemporary states. Using the data provided, students should be able to test various ideas found in popular media on foreign policy. The manual is divided into two parts. Part one contains discussion of the origins of the field of comparative foreign policy analysis, the nature and value of studying foreign policy comparatively, and provides a framework for organizing information about the foreign policy behavior of states. Part one also discusses ways in which data in Part two can be used for the comparative study of foreign policy. Part two contains a country key code; a description of 38 data variables on 114 countries; a codebook for the data listing; and a listing of comparative foreign policy data. A bibliography is included. (Author)
