In this volume, scholars and teachers share ideas about new ways to teach history, culture and theory, as well as new topics such as gender, information flows and discourse. This book is the product of a series of roundtable discussions conducted under the auspices of the Annual Meetings of the International Studies Association. At both the 1991 Meetings in Vancouver and the 1992 Meetings in Atlanta we were extremely gratified by the response to our roundtables on Teaching World Politics in the 1990s.
