Linda R. Tropp, University of Massachusetts   The Encyclopedia of Peace Psychology is an invaluable resource for all researchers and students interested in the roots, processes, and consequences of conflict, as well as its solutions. Fathali M. Moghaddam, Georgetown University   A comprehensive and timely compendium of knowledge and wisdom capable of advancing scientific and professional psychology's commitment to the study of peace and social justice.  Amidst a world in turmoil, the Encyclopedia of Peace Psychology offers a substantive foundation for addressing some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
