World Disarmament Kit.
Woito, Robert, Ed.
This kit presents a comprehensive introduction for students to arms control and disarmament issues. Included are copies of published and unpublished articles for each topic. Section I provides a self-survey to enable students to assess their own attitudes, values, and knowledge. The survey poses questions for which students select one of several given answers. Section II offers facts on current bilateral and multilateral arms control agreements, plus a table indicating which nation-states have ratified them. Section III presents contending perspectives on the arms race from Henry Kissinger, Earl Ravenal, Homer Jack, and Bill Rose. Section IV discusses proposals concerning arms control and disarmament issues, from nuclear proliferation to conventional armaments. Sections V and VI present arms control and disarmament issues, respectively, at the United Nations and focus on how that institution's performance can be improved. Section VII suggests a peace initiatives approach that indicates how the United States can lead toward disarmament and how to gain the needed response of other powers. Section VIII lists seven major issues of arms control and disarmament, each followed by questions that will be dealt with in the future. The final section contains resource lists of organizations and newsletters, periodicals, World Without War publications, and national and international decision makers. (ND)
