Peacekeeping: Problems and Possibilities.
Fraenkel, Jack R.; And Others
This material is suitable for students at secondary and college levels, and as adults. Chapter 1, War, Peace, and Survival, provides an historical view of war and makes a convincing case for the necessity of peace. Chapters 2 through 5 examine more closely two of the world's major efforts at peacekeeping during the 20th century--the League of Nations and the United Nations. The reader has an opportunity to see how each of these man-made instruments was intended to keep the peace, and then to see how they actually operated in real situations--Ethiopia in 1934, and the Congo in 1960. In Chapters 6 through 9, two additional suggestions for peacekeeping are suggested, mutual deterrence and world law. Examples are provided of how deterrence worked in Cuba during 1962, and how world law might work in a hypothetical situation. Discussion questions are raised at the end of each capter. It is hoped that by critically evaluating these plans and how they have operated and might operate, the reader will be able to come to some individual conclusions as to the possibilities for and importance of peace in today's world.
