International Relations: Understanding the Behavior of Nations. Second Edition.
Close Up Foundation, Arlington, VA.
This book is designed to help students better understand the forces that shape the foreign policies of all nations and their stake in the future of the global community. The book is organized into four chapters. Chapter 1 examines the behavior of nations and how national interest dictates perceptions, and, therefore actions, of world leaders. Chapter 2 describes the process by which one nation, the United States, develops its foreign policy. Chapter 3 analyzes how events since 1945 have affected the context in which international relations are conducted. Chapter 4 discusses four issues of global importance--military buildups, problems affecting developing nations, international trade, and the environment. The Teacher's Guide is divided into four units (which correspond to the four chapters of the student text), a student pretest and posttest, unit test materials, and student handouts. Each unit contains a list of objectives, key terms, motivation activity, essay and discussion items, and student activities. (DB)
