description:
This study provides data for 36 nations on the behaviors engaged in by internat ional actors and the internal governmental processes associated with these behaviors in the period 1959-1968. Data are available for actors, actions, resources, targets, and behavior. Variables that identify actors include heads of state, ad hoc small groups, formal small groups, multinational collaborators, deliberative assemblies, treasuries, and nongovernmental decision-makers, as well as foreign affairs, economic, intelligence, and internal affairs bureaucracies, and other units. Actions variables are divided into verbal and nonverbal actions and both are further divided into conflictual and cooperative actions. Variables on resources provide information on the nature of the skills the actor used in executing an event, and they include economic, scientific, and technical resources, as well as military, diplomatic, political, legal, cultural, and ideological resources. Information is also provided on the proposed use, actual use, and future time use of these resources. Target variables specify direct and indirect objects, number, and the nature of the objects or targets. Behavior variables are divided into verbal and nonverbal behaviors and include those for unilateral policy exchange, border, protocol, penetrative, military, comment, bargaining, world organization, regional organization, treaty, propaganda and culture, foreign assistance, and economic transaction behaviors. Each record is an event. The data were coded for randomly selected quarter-years of the ten-year period.
