Peace and World Order Studies: A Curriculum Guide. Third Edition.
Feller, Gordon, Ed.; And Others
The third edition of this guide will help college and university educators design and update courses and learn about new resources in world order studies. The guide begins with three essays that set forth the rationale, methodology, and content of world order studies. The opening essay critiques traditional social science and argues for a more human-centered, transdisciplinary, and value explicit approach of study and research. The second essay deals with the principal objections to world order studies and depicts the scope of the field today. The final essay explores the methodology and content of world order studies. The second part of the guide, which comprises the major portion of the document, contains 64 course syllabi. Brief course descriptions, schedules of class sessions, and lists of books used are provided. The syllabi cover a broad range of world order concerns from general introductory courses to more topically focused ones on war and peace, international organization and law, economic development, human rights, ecological stability, values and change, and teacher training. The final section lists key resources--books, articles, journals, films and organizations--that are available to world order educators. (Author/RM)
