  POL 255 Week 1 Assignment Theory, Arms    Races, and the Prisoner’s Dilemma   For more classes visit   www.snaptutorial.com    Theory, Arms Races, and the Prisoner’s Dilemma.  Due by Day 7. Purpose: The primary goal of this weekly summative assignment is to explore some of the most important concepts and paradigms used in the study of international relations (IR). In this first week of class, you will utilize major IR theories along with the Prisoner’s Dilemma  paradigm to analyze one of the most long-standing and perplexing international issues, an arms race. Prepare: Review the Introduction and Chapter 1 of the course text. In addition, read the assigned article, China's Double-Digit Defense Growth: What It Means for a Peaceful Rise. Reflect: The study of international relations often involves trying to describe, explain, and predict global interactions using various theoretical perspectives. Importantly, our ability to describe, explain, and predict accurately how states react to military competition, often described as arms races, is critical for expanding our understanding of global politics. Consequently, the ability not only to analyze arms races between states using established theories of international relations but also to explain these in teractions using the Prisoner’s Dilemma paradigm are critical skills that all political scientists must have in order to become proficient in their chosen field of study. Write: In your assignment, complete the following: · Discuss how the articl e illustrates a prisoner’s dilemma.  · Describe the realist, liberal, and identity perspectives reflected in the article.  · Explain the best course of action for the U.S., using the Prisoner’s Dilemma paradigm as a guide.  The Week One Assignment: o Must be at least two pages (not including title and reference  pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. o Must include a separate title page with the following: o Titleofpaper o Student’snam e o Course name and number o Instructor’sname  o Datesubmitted •  Must use at least three appropriate sources: o Thesecouldincludethearticle,thecoursetext,andanyoftherequiredorrecommended resources for this week. o You can also include additional resources found on the Ashford University Library website. The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. · Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the In-Text Citation Guide. · Must include an introductory paragraph with a succinct thesis statement. · Must include a conclusion that summarizes the main points and restates the thesis. • Must include a separate references page that is formatted according  to APA style as outlined in the APA References List. =============================================== POL 255 Week 1 Discussion IR Theories  Strengths and Weaknesses  For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com    IR Theories: Strengths and Weaknesses. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Prepare: Read the Introduction and Chapter 1 of the course text. Reflect: Perspectives have been described as “a statement or a hypothesis that explains the primary cause of what is happening  —  for example a struggle for power causes conflict and sometimes war” (Nau, 2017, p. 4). Our ability to describe, explain, and predict international relations (IR) are valuable skills that enable political scientists to influence and affect international politics and global leaders. One of the most important tools that international relations experts routinely utilize are theoretical perspectives. Specifically, most IR specialists are experts at using realism, liberalism, and identity perspectives to describe, explain, and predict international relations. Consequently, students of IR must master these perspectives and the intricacies of their major principles and tenets. Write: In your initial post of at least 200 words, complete the following: · Describe one strength of each of the realist, liberal, and identity  perspectives. · Describe one weaknesses of each of the realist, liberal, and identity perspectives. · Assess which perspective(s) provides a more comprehensive and accurate explanation of world events. Respond to Peers: By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates' initial posts. Your peer responses must be at least 75 words each. As you reply to your classmates, attempt to take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth, or responding to the posts that they make to you. Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze things in as much detail as you can. For instance, y ou might evaluate a classmate’s assessment of  perspective strengths and weaknesses compared to your own assessments.   =============================================== POL 255 Week 1 QUIZ For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com    POL 255 Week 1 QUIZ =============================================== POL 255 Week 2 A Levels of A and the Crisis   in Syria For more classes visit   www.snaptutorial.com    POL 255 Week 2 A Levels of A and the Crisis in Syria =============================================== POL 255 Week 2 Discussion Communicating   National Interests    For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com    Prepare: Read Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the course text. Reflect: Effective and timely communications among international actors is essential for a peaceful and predictable international environment. History is replete with examples of both effective, timely communications and ineffective, poorly timed communications  between international actors. Effective, timely communications enables actors to share interests, to establish constructive and collaborative relationships, and to maintain stable and progressive foreign affairs. Ineffective, inopportune communications can result in conflict, reduce cooperation, and increase stress and fear among international actors. International disputes, diplomatic incidents, and even wars, have resulted from ineffective, inopportune communications. Success and failure can often be attributed to similar or contrasting theoretical perspectives on how to conduct foreign affairs. Therefore, a more in-depth understanding of how communications are sent, received, and interpreted is needed in order to understand global politics. Write: In your initial post of at least 200 words, complete only the  portions you are assigned: · If your last name begins with A - M, you must complete the following: 1. Identify, from the course text readings on World War I, World War II, and the Cold War, one example from each conflict of effective, timely communications of national interests between international actors. 2. Explain what factor(s) made the communications effective and timely. · If your last name begins with N - Z, you must complete the following:
