Synopsis:

 

"I teach an introductory course on this topic and can think of no other useful text in the field...I like the organization and scope of this volume―beginning with the nature and causes of war, then proceeding to ′negative′ peace, and then ′positive′ peace. I also liked the extensive use of literary fragments―my students would relate to that....There′s a need for it and I think the authors are on the right track."

-Michael Klare

Hampshire College

 

This core textbook comprehensively introduces students to the relatively young interdisciplinary field of peace and conflict studies. This field is unabashedly value-oriented, and although the authors are up front about their own values and opinions, they attempt to present all sides of complex debates to assist students in forming personal and social opinions, insisting only that those opinions be informed by serious intellectual effort. A hallmark of the book is an effort to encourage independent and critical thinking among student readers. 

 

About the Author: David P. Barash (Ph.D., University of Wisconsin) has been with the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington since 1973. His studies span animal behavior and social psychology, with concentrations in sociobiology, psychological aspects of the arms race and nuclear war, peace studies, and animal behavior and evolution. A prolific author, he has written more than 250 technical articles and 31 books ranging from monographs to college textbooks to popular trade titles. His book, Introduction to Peace Studies (1991), was the first comprehensive undergraduate textbook in the field of Peace Studies.
