Teaching About War and its Control: A Selective Annotated Bibliography for the Social Studies Teacher.
Nesbitt, William A., Ed.
A broad coverage of the war/peace field is represented by the items in this annotated bibliography and resource guide. It attempts to provide some solutions to questions about what to teach, how to teach it, and, of course, where to find materials. Both disciplines and topics appropriate to social studies courses are represented by books of fiction and nonfiction, articles, films, simulations, and case studies. The first of three sections is comprised of entries on the nature and causes of war, from the perspectives of history, anthropology, psychology, weaponry, nationalism, conflict, aggression, violence, and international system, and population growth. A second section, War Prevention: Approaches and Techniques contains items on such topics as U.S. foreign policy; arms control and disarmament; ethics, religion, and war; world order; futurism; and nonviolence. Each item is coded as appropriate for the average, above average, or superior student, and/or for the teacher. Most entries include price and availability information. The third and last section lists resource organizations in the war/peace field. Addresses and brief descriptions of activities and services are provided. (JLB)
