Abstract:

Research was undertaken to explore the relationship of national attentiveness to national behavior at the eventinteraction level. The international attention measured by The Times of London attention focus to 86 other nations was related to United Kingdom trade with the 86 nations, the total international activity level of these nations, and how often they acted toward the United Kingdom. Two additional variables--the geographical distance between the United Kingdom and the 86 nations, and how conflictual the 86 were in their international behavior--were studied for United Kingdom attentiveness. Further analysis was made concerning the relationship of United Kingdom attention to United Kingdom actions as related to distribution of international event-interactions. Author
