Syllabus on International Relations

By Parker Thomas Moon; Institute of International Education (New York, N.Y.) | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

In its effort to realize the aim of its existence, viz.: "the development of international good-will by means of educational agencies," the Institute of International Education has published a number of booklets that have received hearty commendation both in the United States and foreign countries. These booklets, however, have been primarily for the benefit of foreign students coming to study in the United States or of American students going abroad to study in foreign countries, e.g. the Guide Book for Foreign Students in the United States or the Opportunities for Graduate Study in Great Britain. But the great majority of American students do not go abroad to study and few American colleges give courses adequate enough to enable students to understand the difficult problems that confront men today in their international relations. In the hope that such a need might be partially supplied, the Director of the Institute determined, if possible, to publish a syllabus and bibliography on international relations which because of its adequacy, accuracy and objectivity, would command the approval not only of college teachers but of the public in general and might result in its being used not only by college classes but also by forums, women's clubs, labor unions and other organizations.

The Director invited a group of teachers at Columbia University each of whom was engaged in teaching some branch of the subject to advise with him on the project, viz.: Professors Carlton J. H. Hayes, Parker T. Moon, Joseph P. Chamberlain, Edward M. Earle, Lindsay Rogers and J. Montgomery Gambrill, and Dr. Isaiah Bowman, the Director of the American Geographical Society. They were enthusiastic about the idea. It was at once agreed that Professor Moon should draw up the syllabus and present a part of it to the group once a week for criticism. This was done throughout a whole scholastic year. It means much for the accuracy and impartiality of the syllabus that such a group of specialists should have collectively considered and criticized it, section by section. Acknowledgment should also be made of the excellent services of Miss Mary Evelyn Townsend of Teachers College in assisting in the preparation of the bibliographical references for Parts One to Five and Part Nine. The Director feels that the great amount of time and effort given to the syllabus by Professor Moon has been more than justified by the result and he is confident that its publication will have as a consequence a greatly increased attention given to the study of international relations.

Mention should perhaps also be made that the same group of scholars
