Covering elementary, secondary, and higher education, the materials discussed present a variety of activities, decision-making approaches, and analytical assessments of policies of many countries. Topics include crucial decisions of the nuclear age, history of weaponry, and imagining alternative futures. In addition to the specific curricula mentioned, four general resource guides published by national organizations are noted. Finally, several sources are listed which concentrate on the USSR and the Cold War. (KC)
