  • It contains groundbreaking texts from the founder of this unique academic discipline
  • It addresses an important field, peace studies (As Willy Brandt pointed out, "Peace is not everything, but without peace, everything is nothing")
  • It includes some of the most important contributions from Galtung's 160 books and over 1600 articles
This is the first ever anthology of key articles by Johan Galtung, widely regarded as the founder of the academic discipline of peace studies. It covers such concepts as direct, structural and cultural violence; theories of conflict, development, civilization and peace; peaceful conflict transformation; peace education; mediation; reconciliation; a life-sustaining economy; macro-history; deep culture and deep structure; and social science methodology. Galtung has contributed original research, concepts and theories to more than 20 social science disciplines, including sociology, international relations and future studies, and has also applied his new insights in practice. The book is a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners, and can serve as a supplemental textbook for graduate and upper undergraduate courses in peace studies and related fields.
