Building New Pathways to Peace

In the post-Cold War era, problems of war and peace have become complicated and ambiguous, involving such nonmilitary issues as the north-south dichotomy of power, resource depletion, and globalization of capitalism. To create a twenty-first-century intellectual and theoretical foundation for peace studies, Building New Pathways to Peace considers both the old concepts of tolerance, shalom, and wa, and the relatively new concepts of human security, decent peace, credibility, accountability, plurality, multiculturalism, and transnationalism. It also elucidates impediments to and necessary conditions for actualizing peace.

Reviews

"A welcome addition to the field of peace studies for its thoughtfulness, comprehensiveness, and dedication to build a more peaceful human society. I highly recommend it for the upper-level undergraduate and lower-level graduate courses on peace as well as on Japan studies."—Mikyoung Kim, Pacific Affairs, June 2012

"This book shows readers current issues in the field, such as recent developments in peace research and peace study, grand theory, and how the three key concepts of peace, security, and kyosei (coexistence) are interrelated."—International House of Japan Bulletin, Vol. 31(2) 2011
