Peace and World Order Studies: A Curriculum Guide. Fourth Edition.
Wien, Barbara J., Ed.
The fourth edition of this curriculum guide will help college, university, and secondary school educators design and update courses, familiarize themselves with new literature and resources, and plan and justify new academic programs in the study of global problems. While syllabus categories remain the same as in previous editions, several new syllabi sections have been added. Over 100 course syllabi and outlines drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including political science, literature, anthropology, sociology, international law, engineering, physics, and the natural sciences are provided. Following a foreword and introductory essay in Part I, course syllabi in Part II are presented, arranged in the following sections: an overview of world problems; peacemaking and nonviolence; women and world order; world order education: teacher training; hunger and the politics of food distribution; ecological balance; international law and organization; human rights and social justice; world political economy and economic justice; militarism and the arms race; religious perspectives on justice and peace; culture, community, values, and change; regional studies; and alternative futures. A list of funding sources and a case study section describing the development and intellectual content of 31 major curriculum programs in the United States are included in Part III. Resources in Part IV include a filmography, a bibliography, an annotated list of organizations, and a list of journals and periodicals. (LH)
