"Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies stands as a direct challenge to the conventional study of these two topics, which are often only approached from the singular perspective of a specialized discipline. In contrast, this text approaches the study of peace and conflict as an interdisciplinary one.
The reading selections examine peace, conflict, violence, and power as essential elements, at both the micro- and macro- levels, in determining the course of events. Topics addressed include the meaning of violence itself, peace as a form of social justice, the politics of identity, the impact of global warming on national security, the economic costs of intervention, and strategies for de-radicalizing Islamic extremists.
In recognition of the fact that peace is much more than the absence of war, Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies gives readers new insights into the causes of international conflict. The selected readings pose fresh questions, and respond to standard questions in new ways.
Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies can be used in political science and history courses. It is also a useful supplemental text for sociology courses.
Darren Zook earned his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, where he currently teaches in the Department of Political Science and in International and Area Studies.
