Peace and World Order Education: A Study Guide/Mini Course.
Institute for World Order, New York, NY.
This study guide may be used as a reader for exploratory discussions among college students and educators interested in peace, world order, and global change studies. The essays and reprints of journal articles in the guide are general introductions to the issues covered by world order education. The first article, "World Resources and the World Middle Class," presents the dynamics between global population growth, the development of a world middle class, and the physical and environmental constraints of the planet. "Hunger and World Order" demonstrates that world hunger and poverty are sustained by national arms expenditures and balance of payments concerns. "A Strategy for System Change" presents a plan for universal disarmament which could be initiated unilaterally by the United States. "Human Development and the Security Straitjacket" considers whether human aggression is inherently constructive or destructive. "The Program of the Institute for World Order" analyzes different perceptions of and responses to the current global transformation. "Third World and World Order" articulates from a Third World perspective the challenges developing countries face in a world nearing environmental limits. The last two articles focus on "Women and World Order" and the "World Order Declaration" issued at the 1977 Montreal meeting of the World Order Models Project. (Author/RM)
