Militarism Versus Development. Teaching Global Issues.
Teachergram, v2 n2 Fall 1988
Articles and activities written for the senior secondary level explore the complex links between militarization and underdevelopment. The articles discuss choices between missiles and food in developing countries, the internal and external causes of militarism, and the hidden costs of militarism. Case studies of the Kwajalein Atoll and Ethiopia look at the effects of militarism on two societies. Four activities provide further investigation of militarism and development. A class simulation offers an opportunity to analyze the case of the Philippines. A list of 25 audio-visual and print resources and organization with resources on militarism and development provides further information. (CK)
