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. Featuring both classic and contemporary work, it enables students to read highly influential articles while also introducing them to the most current perspectives in the field. Timeless classics from Leo Tolstoy, Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, and Henry David Thoreau are included alongside contemporary pieces. Updated to address current concerns, the third edition incorporates fourteen new readings.

Ideal on its own as a foundation text in any introductory peace studies course, Approaches to Peace, Third Edition, is also compact enough to use as a supplement with more specialized readings. 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." 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
