Russell Lincoln Ackoff is a recognized authority in the field of operations research and systems theory. This volume is divided into four major sections.

The third section shows the influence of Ackoff's thinking on decision making and problem solving, while the final section offers a reassessment of current approaches to systems planning on the national level. In addition, the editors have provided a general introduction, as well as introductions to each of the five sections.

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is designed to replace the ignorance, misinformation, and negative stereotypes that many students hold about the Soviet Union and its peoples with a reasoned and rational outlook based on critical thinking and class activities. The introduction to these activities provides background and a rationale for teaching about the Soviet Union. The first section of the activities, "Raising Questions...Gathering Information," contains 11 group activities to stimulate thinking; find out what students know; and examine assumptions, perceptions, and information, and their sources. The second section, "More to Explore," contains 19 activities to motivate further study and to provide some background in Soviet history, language, and culture. Examples of the Soviet calendar, the cyrillic alphabet, and maps of the Soviet Union are included. A "Teachers Fact Sheet" of general information on the Soviet Union, a list of 19 recommended resources (organizations and publications), and the "Cheeverwood" cartoon series (M. Fry) on student's attitudes about the Soviet Union are also provided. (Ppb)

Listening to children : Soviet and American voices by Lucile Burt( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide explains how and why the videotapes, "There's a Nuclear War Going On Inside Me" and "What Soviet Children Are Saying about Nuclear Weapons," were made and provides background information and activities that will aid in using the tapes. Chapters I and iii contain interviews with producers of the videotapes. Topics are how children were selected and prepared for the taping, how questions were posed, how editing was done, and, in the case of the Soviet children, how the investigators gained access to the children and what, if any, restrictions were imposed. Chapters ii and iv are transcripts of the video tapes. Chapter v provides activities that allow young people and adults to join in the on-going study about how children everywhere are affected by living in the nuclear age. Some activities encourage local research about the attitudes of children; others help raise the question of what role schools and families might play in educating about nuclear weapons and understanding other cultures. Chapter vi provides the names and addresses of four people who have used the videotapes and have agreed to share their experience with others. (Is)
