Item description for The No-Nonsense Guide to Conflict and Peace (No-Nonsense Guides) by Helen Ware, Peter Greener, Deanna Iribarnegaray, Bert Jenkins & Sabina Lautensach...
The twentieth century was the most bloody in history, and already conflict in this century has taken a heavy toll. Most wars are now within countries rather than between states, and often it is civilians that suffer most, especially women and children.
This is an invaluable guide for students, peace groups, and activists. 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 rebuild communities. It offers ideas and inspiration for creating lasting peace.
