The No-Nonsense Guide to Conflict and Peace

by Helen Ware
£6.99   paperback  New Internationalist Publications (2006)

The No-Nonsense Guide to Conflict and Peace by Helen Ware The 20th century was the most bloody in history as sophisticated weaponry killed millions of people. And already conflict in the new century has taken a heavy toll. In today's world, most wars are within countries rather than between states. Often, it is civilians that suffer most, expecially women and children.
 
This invaluable No-Nonsense Guide is excellent for students, peace groups and activists. With tables, maps, case studies and quotes it looks at how conflict escalates and ways it can be prevented. It examines the changing types of war, including the 'War on Terror' and ethnic conflict such as in Rwanda; the role of diplomacy and the UN, and what steps ordinary people are taking to re-build communities. It offers ideas and inspirations for creating lasting peace.
