Invitation to Peace Studies is the first textbook in the field to emphasize 21st-century research and controversies and to encourage the more frequent use of a gender perspective in analyzing peace, war and violence. Recent empirical research forms the core of most chapters, but substantial attention is also given to faith-based ideas, movements, and peace pioneers. The book examines compelling contemporary topics like cyber warfare, drones, robots, digital activism, hactivism, the physiology of peace, rising rates of suicide, and peace through health. It is also unique in its use of a single coherent perspective-that of a global peace network-to make sense of the historically unprecedented and interconnected web of diverse ideas, individuals, groups, organizations, and movements currently promoting peace across the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Invitation to Peace Studies is a fantastic textbook from start to finish. It fills a gap in the existing group of textbooks on the topic and is truly needed. * Walton Brown Foster, Central Connecticut State University *
I like the author's approach, particularly the premise that an invitation to peace is something that can and is made by many. 'Peace is something for all of us and not just for the saintly' is a wonderful message for students (and the broader public) to hear. * Greg Carroll, Salem State University *
Invitation to Peace Studies will prove to be an irresistible invitation in the marketplace of Peace Studies. * Clement E. Adibe, DePaul University *
