Study Guide for Midterm 1 1)  What are the different levels of analysis? - Structural level is the most comprehensive and most general. It focuses on positions of  states (structural) or interactions of states (process) - Domestic levels of analysis focus on characteristics of specific states: types of government,  institutions. - Individual levels of analysis focus on specific individuals in explaining events.  - Foreign Policy level looks at interplay between domestic and systemic levels of analysis. When we talk about one or the other, we do not mean that other levels do not exist, rather  we say that a particular level influences all the other levels.  How are they related to the three perspectives?  What are some of the important factors that operate on each of the levels of analysis? 2)  What are the main independent variables for the three perspectives? What are the  dependent variables that they are used to explain? They are trying to explain dependent and independent variables.  (Systematic, Domestic, Individual) - The realists are with the independent. Global systematic = independent variable - Domestic is the independent variable because of government.  - Individual is independent. Characters for individuals. Realism    systemic Liberal   domestic Identity  independent Cannot be both systematic and domestic 3)  Why is international anarchy important for Realism? There is no centralized power, constant fighting for control. There can be no rules made.
