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.
