13 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the dramatic end of the Pacific War in 1945 the threat of nuclear war has exercised the minds of many. Initial fears concerned the risk that a political crisis between the Superpowers would escalate through miltary confrontation into a 'calculated' nuclear war. Another scenario pictured a new Hitler commanding a nuclear-capable state prepared to use such weapons 'irrationally', possibly sparking a 'catalytic' nuclear war between the major Powers. More recently attention has shifted towards the risk of the 'accidental' release of nuclear weapons. While the risk of intentional conflict bet

Peace education in Great Britain : some results of a survey by Hanns-Fred Rathenow( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To determine the extent to which peace studies are available and the attitudes of school officials toward peace education in Great Britain, an 8-part survey was administered to 125 Local Education Authorities (LEAs) in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The extent to which peace studies were implemented and accepted by LEAs is illustrated by a breakdown of scoring on individual questions. Of the 69 respondents, the majority (53.6 percent) supported the idea of peace studies. With regard to the political composition of the councils, however, there were some differences between Labor and Conservative councils and between Councils in "nuclear free" and "non-nuclear-free" zones. More than half of the nuclear-free councils (68.4 percent) and 35 percent of the non-nuclear-free councils supported peace studies. Moreover, 41.1 percent of the conservative councils and 55.6 percent of the labor councils were supportive of peace studies. Despite these differences, there appeared to be some consensus on the central topics to be considered in peace studies. When asked to rank order 17 topics, participants in the survey gave "violence and war" as well as "the nuclear arms race" highest priority, whereas "structural values" and "the distribution of social commodities" received lowest priority. The particular examples described in the final part of the report illustrate some of the approaches that have been developed for teaching peace studies topics in the schools. (LH)
The fear trap : the effects of international tension on the probability of unintended nuclear war by Ib Damgaard Petersen( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experimentation and Simulation in Political Science( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is rare for the political scientist who handles data which he has not generated himself to cast his mind to that of an observer watching an experiment, it is equally rare for him to plan controlled experiments in which he creates his own data. This lack of attention to the experimental aspect of political science hinders the development of the discipline, especially in relation to the building and testing of adequate theories. To remedy this lack a Round Table conference of the International Political Science Association was held in Vancouver in March 1970. The papers presented at the conference are published in this volume. They discuss the application of experimental techniques to the study of politics and give examples of such applications ranging from paper and computer games to experiments involving the observation of human interaction in a laboratory or in the field. It is hoped that this work will lead to a greater use of controlled experiments in a discipline which has not yet given to the experimental method the importance it should have in the production of relevant data and in the building and testing of theories
