Manual for the International Relations Laboratory.
Pirro, Ellen B.; Snyder, Stephen
This manual is the fifth in a series aimed at giving undergraduate students sophistication in dealing with actual research problems, and in the discovery and examination of data. It is intended as a supplement to a regular International Relations program. As a laboratory manual, it makes certain suggestions for tools and techniques. Some exercises are intended to be introductory; others presuppose statistical training and experience in data analysis. Concepts and methods covered are: conflict behavior and aggregate data, international images, survey analysis, attitude measurement and content analysis, decision making and simulation, political community formation, voting behavior analysis, international regionalism, game theory, factor analysis. Exercises can be tailored to meet the demands of research facilities in particular places. Assigned and supplementary reading, a codebook, and a glossary are included. ED 026 028 references the other manuals in this series. (SBE)
