The No-nonsense Guide to Conflict and Peace (No-nonsense Guides)

by HelenWare (Editor)


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, especially women and children. This invaluable 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 also offers ideas and inspiration for creating lasting peace.

Media Reviews
Everyone will find in [this Guide] ideas with which they agree and ideas which they would strenuously debate. What matters is how conflict is dealt with - and this is the theme of this highly worthwhile book. Estanislau de Silva, Minister for Agriculture, Timor Leste/East Timor
