9781441480989: The History Of The Culture Of War

Although there are many histories of war, this is the first history of the culture of war. Drawing on anthropological, sociological and historical data, it traces all aspects of the the culture of war in its evolution from prehistory to the present time. It concludes that the history of the state has been the increasing monopolization of the culture of war, to the point that the state is incapable of promoting a culture of peace. This book is part of a trilogy along with World Peace through the Town Hall: A Strategy for the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace and the utopian novella, I Have Seen the Promised Land. Together they put forward a comprehensive and feasible plan to achieve world peace. They are based on the author's responsibility for the United Nations International Year for the Culture of Peace (2000), the Manifesto 2000 signed by 75 million people, and the United Nations Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace.

About the Author:

Dr David Adams, since his retirement from UNESCO in 2001, has continued to devote his energies to the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace. In 2001 he established the culture of peace info website (http://www.culture-of-peace.info). In 2002, he established the Culture of Peace News Network (http://cpnn-world.org). And since 2004 he has coordinated the Civil Society Report to the United Nations on the Culture of Peace (http://decade-culture-of-peace.org). These websites have grown to over 10,000 pages of documentation. At UNESCO, he was the Director of the Unit for the International Year for the Culture of Peace, proclaimed for the Year 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly. He had come to UNESCO in 1992 to develop the Culture of Peace Programme as an supplement and alternative to military peacekeeping operations. On behalf of UNESCO he drafted UN documents, including the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace (1999). Previously, at Yale and Wesleyan Universities, he published many studies on the brain mechanisms of aggressive behavior, the evolution of war, and the psychology of peace activists, and he helped to develop and publicize the Seville Statement on Violence.
