Above section open to Education Majors only.  Students must enroll in a
discussion section.

Four questions drive this course: How do people cope with forces that try
to control them, such as authoritarian governments?  Why aren't all
countries rich?  Why do so many people in other countries feel antagonized
by the US, our foreign policy, and our culture?  Has modern science done
more good or harm to mankind?  We'll pursue answers to these questions by
reading some fascinating books, and following lectures and discussion
sections dealing with such topics as independence movements in Africa,
Japan's economic miracle, the Vietnam War, and the rise of nuclear energy
and weapons.  Essay exams, brief papers, and regular discussion of course
topics.
