About the Author:

Michael Strada has taught international studies courses at West Liberty State College since 1969 and at West Virginia University where he was a visiting professor from 1985―2001. In 1990 he taught for the Semester at Sea program and he has traveled to more than 40 countries, including ten trips to Russia. Strada’s academic degrees consist of three in political science (international relations) and one in counseling psychology, but all of his courses are taught in an interdisciplinary manner. In 2003 he was nominated by his institution for a national CASE Professor of the Year Award and in 2005 finished as runner-up in the statewide Professor of the Year Award.
 
Dr. Strada was one of four political scientists recruited by Professor Sophia Peterson of W.V.U. as co-founders of the FACDIS international studies consortium in 1980. It now has over 375 faculty members from more than 15 disciplines in all of West Virginia’s colleges and universities. He served as FACDIS statewide Study Abroad Coordinator for 12 years, as FACDIS Co-Director for four years, and authored its two successful entries for national awards: The G. Theodore Mitau Award for innovative programming in higher education (1987), and the Theodore Hesburgh Award’s Certificate of Excellence for faculty development activities (2000). Professor Strada has received the West Liberty Award for Excellence in Professional Activity on three occasions. In 2002, he was the recipient of the West Virginia Political Science Association’s inaugural Distinguished Political Scientist Award.
 
Since 1998 he has published one scholarly book (Friend or Foe? Russians in American Film and Foreign Policy, 1933―1991, Scarecrow Press, 1998); one reference book (Benefits of Model Syllabi, University Press of America, 2006); three articles in refereed academic journals, two non-refereed articles, and four essays in high-circulation magazines. Refereed pieces have appeared in Peer Review (2002), Liberal Education (2001), and To Improve the Academy (2000). The high circulation essays were published by USA TODAY monthly magazine and The NEA Higher Education Advocate. These articles dealt with the role of the course syllabus, the assessment movement in higher education, U.S. cinema-politics, and the war and peace attitudes of Vietnam War draft resisters who moved to Canada.

Review:

Readability
“The information is straightforward and the case studies provide real-world examples.”
James J. Sheehan
Miami University
 
“The author makes good use of concrete examples with case studies.”
James J. Sheehan
Miami University
 
“Clearly this is a student-friendly book.”
Dr. William M. Downs
Georgia State University
 
“Professor Strada has written an eminently readable text characterized by many excellent features.  Each chapter begins with a core objective and a set of thematic questions.  These help focus the reader, anticipating the content in the chapter.”
John H. Scott
Wheaton College
 
 
Writing Style
“The writing style used by the author is very effective.  The placement of terms in bold letters and also placing the term and its definition in the margin is helpful for the student.”
Audrey Eileen Gage
Central Florida Community College
 
Content
“The text is very well written with good research and useful information.”
Audrey Eileen Gage
Central Florida Community College
 
“The text is sprinkled with interesting situations and cases such as fire-walking in Taiwan, ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, and Desert Storm.  Each of these raises challenging questions that should engage the student’s mind and cause a reexamination of assumptions.”
John H. Scott
Wheaton College
