about

In the post-Cold War era, problems of war and peace have become complicated and ambiguous, involving such nonmilitary issues as the north-south dichotomy of power, resource depletion, and globalization of capitalism. To create a twenty-first-century intellectual and theoretical foundation for peace studies, Building New Pathways to Peace considers both the old concepts of tolerance, shalom, and wa, and the relatively new concepts of human security, decent peace, credibility, accountability, plurality, multiculturalism, and transnationalism. It also elucidates impediments to and necessary conditions for actualizing peace.

Noriko Kawamura is associate professor of history, Washington State University. Yoichiro Murakami and Shin Chiba teach at the International Christian University in Tokyo. Other contributors are Martha Cottam, Gregory Hooks, Takashi Kibe, Otwin Marenin, Anri Morimoto, T. V. Reed, Susan Ross, Raymond Sun, and Kano Yamamoto.

In the post-Cold War era, problems of war and peace have become complicated and ambiguous, involving such nonmilitary issues as the north-south dichotomy of power, resource depletion, and globalization of capitalism. To create a twenty-first-century intellectual and theoretical foundation for peace studies, Building New Pathways to Peace considers both the old concepts of tolerance, shalom, and wa, and the relatively new concepts of human security, decent peace, credibility, accountability, plurality, multiculturalism, and transnationalism. It also elucidates impediments to and necessary conditions for actualizing peace.A transdisciplinary approach that can serve as a guide for future peace research. - Johan Galtung, author of Peace by Peaceful Means
