About the Book
Peace: A Compendium provides a uniquely comprehensive, intensive and practical presentation of the diverse facets of peace. Featuring both classic and contemporary works, it enables readers to understand the history of peace and conflict from a variety of disciplines including philosophy, literature, law and theology while also introducing them to the most current perspectives in the field and actionable possibilities.

It aims to be the cost-effective scholarly anthology of irenology as well as a clarion call in a world that continues to grow in population, an environment whose resources are increasingly threatened, and an ongoing struggle between nationalism and globalization, individual human rights and the greater good of society.

It can stand as a foundation text as well as serving as a springboard to more advanced studies and research. The target audience is students, teachers, and practitioners of peace and conflict studies, and conflict resolution.

It is also highly recommended for students of peace operations, peace building, sociology, international security and general international studies.
