Peacekeeping. Perspectives in World Order.
Fraenkel, Jack R., Ed.; And Others
This pamphlet, intended for senior high classroom use, defines war, peace, and peacekeeping systems; discusses the destructiveness of war; and proposes the case study method for studying world order. The major portion of the booklet explores ways of peacekeeping through analysis of four different models: collective security, collective force, mutual deterrence, and limited world government. Three of these models are illustrated by actual historical systems (the League of Nations, the United Nations, the balance of power between the United States and the USSR) and one by a hypothetical system, that of world law. Each is further appraised by presentation of a scenario of a crisis when the system was used, such as Ethiopia in 1934-1936, the Congo in 1960, Cuba in 1962, and a hypothetical situation in Malaysia in 1989. Organizational charts, maps and chronologies are used throughout the pamphlet, as well as discussion aids in analyzing the systems, reviewing the cases, and using the models. Conclusions and suggestions are provided in the final chapter for testing the models, using a rating chart, building your own model, and testing your own model. (CK)
