Applying the Strategic Perspective, 4e Solution Manual Introduction Exercise I-1. Objective: Distinguish between theory assumptions and frequent research topics; make inferences about theoretical foundations of works from their titles. a ) L e ) N R b) C f) see below c ) N R g ) N R d) C h) C ["State Power and International Trade," for example, draws responses of L from students who see the topic as being 'trade', which is a frequent topic for liberal scholars. Liberals, however, would not expect power to matter in trade, so the 'State Power' component should trigger NR (neorealist). Item f ("Between Regimes and Realism - Transnational Agenda Setting: Soviet Compliance with CSCE Human Rights Norms") is intentionally inserted as an ambiguous case; it allows excellent discussion of how the theories may complement one another. The latter nicely previews Exercise I- 3. Instructors should note that the book's treatment of liberalism primarily addresses regimes, cooperation, and international law; it does not explicitly address the underlying assumptions about absolute gains, but it does note that liberalism assumes hierarchy as a structural element.] Exercise I-2. Objective: Apply core propositions of strategic perspective to current or familiar events. Answers will vary. Exercise I-3. Objective: Identify roles for power, perceptions, and preferences in actual and hypothetical situations. Answers will vary. Chapter 1 Notes: Exercise 3 contains a Challenge problem. In the early part of the term, encourage all students to try the Challenges. None are particularly hard, but they usually do require taking one logically straightforward step beyond what the student has already been explicitly told or taught to do. Early success coupled with positive reinforcement will significantly increase students' confidence about the mathematical approach to studying politics; this will be particularly true for many women. This chapter contains three exercises designed to increase student comfort with mathematical notation. In these exercises I also introduce notation elements and conventions, and briefly review math concepts, as appropriate. Some instructors will wish to assign only one or two of these for grading convenience; in terms of relative importance to later concepts, I recommend assigning Exercise 2 first and Exercise 3 next. Exercise 1 is least important conceptually but it will be a confidence builder for many hesitant students and those with visual learning styles.
