Approaches to Peace: A Reader in Peace Studies, Third Edition, provides a unique and interdisciplinary sampling of key articles focusing on the diverse facets of peace and conflict studies.

Study questions and a list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter also provide useful resources for students.

About the Author:


David P. Barash is Professor of Psychology at the University of Washington. He is the author of more than twenty books, including Peace and Conflict Studies (2010), Natural Selections: Honest Liars, Selfish Altruists, and Other Realities of Evolution (2007), Understanding Violence (2000), and more than 200 journal articles. A longtime scholar and peace activist, Dr. Barash has been instrumental in establishing Peace Studies as a legitimate academic discipline.

Review:


"Approaches to Peace really is the best introductory overview of the field of peace studies. It provides an excellent foundation for students interested in peace and conflict resolution, not just as an academic field of study but as an intellectual road map to navigate the issues of the day."--Warren R. Haffar, Arcadia University


"A combination of classic statements on peace studies combined with more recent analyses."-- Richard W. Coughlin, Florida Gulf Coast University
