Designed to help students understand the challenges and opportunities facing relations between the United States and the former Soviet Union, this book is organized into four chapters. Chapter 1 explores the differing world views of the two superpowers and the major elements that make up those world views--including geography, economics, and government. Chapters 2 and 3 outline the history of U.S.-Soviet relations from 1917 to the present. Finally, chapter 4 describes issues and poses questions that the United States and the former Soviet Union will face in coming years. A glossary of terms and a list of materials for further reading also are included. The appended teacher's guide has four units, each corresponding to the four chaptes of the students text. The units provide a list of objectives, key terms, a motivation activity, student activities, student handouts, unit tests, and an answer key. (DB)
