SYLLABUS ON
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

PART ONE
INTRODUCTION

I. NATURE OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
NOTE: This section is intended to provoke thought, to raise questions but not to answer them, and incidentally to acquaint the student with terms to be used later and with the scope of the inquiry. Technical details may be used as illustrations, but it is not intended that either the subject or the student should be exhausted, at this point.
PROBLEMS TO BEAR IN MIND:
1. Is the existing system of international relations based on logic, or on history, or on geographic, racial, and economic realities?
2. Do the facts coincide accurately with popular notions of "independence," "sovereignty," "national honor," "national prosperity," "equality of nations," etc.
3. Are the elements of international relations simple enough to be grasped easily by the "average man" without special study?

A. PRELIMINARY QUESTION: WHAT ARE "NATIONS"?

1. In theory:--International relations are relations among "nations," also called powers or sovereign states. A nation, power or sovereign state is defined (popularly) as a government possessing supreme political power over a definite amount of territory; or a people having such a government. All full-fledged nations or sovereign states are (popularly) supposed to possess sovereignty or complete independence, i.e., the right to govern themselves and conduct their own foreign relations without interference by any superior authority.
