This collection of carefully argued essays examines what American students should know about world affairs in the post-cold war era. The issues which are examined are those that will continue to be debated as our schools prepare for the next century. The authors probe the complex and sometimes contradictory claims of global, peace, multicultural, and citizenship education. They offer prescriptions for change based on a strong academic core of history, international relations, government, economics, and geography, with the presumption of values consistent with America's democratic ideals.
