Summary

Approaches to Peace provides a unique and interdisciplinary sampling of classic articles and short literary selections focusing on the diverse aspects of peace and conflict studies. Readings cover the causes of war and ways to prevent it; the need for peace; nonviolence and peace movements; religious inspirations; and our future prospects for peace. The book offers a balanced and unbiased approach that is vital and easily adaptable to general discussions of both peace and conflict, as well as to the rapidly changing issues of the moment. Each selection is prefaced by a short introduction highlighting the author's background, the work's historical context, and the selection's significance in terms of the "big picture."
