Peace- A History of Movements and Ideas

By: David Cortright (408/35895)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press ISBN: 9780521670005

This authoritative, balanced, and highly readable volume traces the rise of peace advocacy and internationalism from their origins in earlier centuries through the mass movements of recent decades: the pacifist campaigns of the 1930s, the Vietnam antiwar movement, and the waves of disarmament activism that peaked in the 1980s. David Cortright brings the story up[-to-date by examining opposition to the Iraq War and responses to the so-called “war on terror.” This history with a modern twist, set in the context of current debates about “the responsibility to protect,” nuclear proliferation, Darfur, and conflict transformation.
