Peace and World Order Studies. A Curriculum Guide.
Weston, Burnes H., Ed.; And Others
This curriculum guide is designed as a tool for both university and secondary school use with the purpose of contributing to the further evolution of peace and world order studies. Part I presents three essays on peace and world order education. Part II comprises the majority of the document. It provides detailed outlines of some 50 college courses and seminars which fall into three categories: (1) courses and studies which present a broad overview of the field; (2) topical themes of peace, social/political justice, economic well being, and ecological balance; and (3) analytical themes which address values clarification/inquiry, futurism, and social/system change. Part III describes 30 selected learning packages in peace and world order studies developed by the Institute for World Order and by various world order centers and programs at universities and private organizations throughout the United States. Parts IV and V offer bibliographies of approximately 1,000 books, periodicals, films, filmstrips, simulation games, and other multimedia resources. Part VI identifies programs in peace and world order teaching and research in North America and elsewhere. Part VII provides addresses of peace-related institutes and organizations throughout the world. (KC)
