Abstract

This project consists of a systematic development of an interdisciplinary course for comparative study of the United States and Latin American social and political systems. It has been designed to provide the students of both American and Latin American cultures with a conceptual framework that might permit them a better understanding of the political and social processes of the United States and Latin American countries. Although geared to undergraduate students, this course might be used in graduate programs as a broad conceptual introduction for the students entering any Social Science program. The course is expected to offer the basic knowledge and skills in the subject. The substantive information is introduced gradually under a controlled process using a version of the Personalized System of Instruction, here applied to socio-cultural and political comparative analysis.
