"World Review for Canadian Schools" Vol VI, No. 10

  • CA CCA MC 889
  • Item
  • 1956

A pamphlet for Canadian schools published monthly during the school year by the United Nations Association in Canada. These pamphlets are meant to inform students of what was happening in other parts of the world at the time and to provide some historical context for the events in question. This issue focusses on the history of Saudi Arabia’s contacts and relations with foreign powers such as the United States and Britain and how that has influenced recent events in 1956. The last segment in this pamphlet has questions meant to spark a discussion and debate about these events among students who have read the pamphlet.
