How should America's schools teach about international politics and ways to peace? This volume makes it clear that approaches should be realistic and pragmatic rather than based on generalities about global education and 'peace education.' The book has essays on international economic relations, cultural and linguistic understanding, and the conflict on ideologies and value systems in international affairs. Contributors examine traditional academic methods as well as recent innovations. A historian-filmmaker analyzes characteristic distortions of TV news and documentaries. Appendices include sample textbook pages as well as a glossary, maps, and an international time line from 1945 to present. Contributors include William J. Bennett, Maurice A. East, Juliana Geran Pilon, John P. Roche, Peter C. Rollins, and ten others.
