Summary

This is one unit of the series described in SO 000 378. It is necessary for the students to understand that the seeds of international cooperation must be cultivated, and that the methods of peaceful solution to world conflict must be constantly re-evaluated and supported. Several specific objectives are listed: 1) to understand the basic foreign policies and the philosophic foundations that have dominated the history of our relations with other nations; 2) to understand the role each individual may play in influencing present United States policy; 3) to seek an understanding of other people, their history, culture, economics aims, philosophy, etc.; 4) to develop an awareness of the growing interdependence of man; 5) to discover the American image abroad by exploring our past and present relations with the world; 6) to explore the fact that American actions have had many casual factors --economic, social, moral, political, religious, etc.; 7) to understand the demands of current world conditions on the individual --taxation, military service, shortages of materials, etc.; 8) to realize that we owe something to other nations for the success of our programs; and, 9) to understand the purpose, function, and responsibility of the many agencies of government that formulate and implement our foreign policy.
