Review:

“This reader provides a comprehensive coverage of diverse aspects of terrorism and should stimulate much fruitful fresh thinking on problems being generated.”
Walter Isard, Cornell University

“ Terrorism has overwhelmed the current generations capacities to understand and deal with violent conflict and war... Every reader is challenged to explore new ways of dealing with human difference and the conflicts that arise from these differences...This book is a must for students in the field of Conflict and Peace Studies.”
Elise Boulding, Dartmouth College

“The 21st century far from being an age of maturity and peace is proving to be bloody and vicious. Evan’s Reader surveys historical discourses on and different and theoretical explanations for violent behavior and war. His final section, however, does not succumb to popular pessimism but suggests a range of eminently sensible strategies for making the world a more peaceful place. This book should be read by everyone seeking to understand modern violence and how to develop realistic non-violent alternatives.”
Kevin P. Clements, Professor and Director, The Australian Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

“This book superbly brings together traditional and innovative perspectives about the origins, conduct, and prevention of wars. Issues about contemporary terrorism are usefully placed in the context of wars of all kinds among state and non-state actors.”
Louis Kriesberg, Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies, Founding Director, Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts, Syracuse University

“There is no topic more important for public awareness and discussion...The editor, William M. Evan, has not only provided a collection of readings that offer diversity of perspective and analysis, but he has also identified questions to generate discussion among the readers.”
Vernie Davis, Professor and Director of Peace and Conflict Studies, Faculty Director of the Conflict Resolution resource Center

“Bringing together a variety of points of views on war and peace in a single volume is commendable, making it an excellent choice for adoption in courses on the subject in universities around the world.”
Ayesha Jalal, Professor of History, Tufts University

“At a time of confusion about how to deal with terrorism and create a peaceful world, this book will stimulate readers to think about new solutions.”
Mildred A Schwartz, Professor Emerita of Sociology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Visiting Scholar at New York University

“William Evan has produced a remarkably wide-ranging, thoughtful, and mind-expanding anthology. It extends from readings in socio-biology to theology, and includes today’s key debate, originating with Kant, on the “democratic peace”. Students in dogmatic slumbers will be forced to wake up.”
Brendan O’Leary, Lauder Professor of Political Science
