Fully revised to reflect the realities of the post-Cold War era, this standard curricular reference provides a comprehensive review of the field of peace and world security studies. Six introductory essays systematically review current intellectual and pedagogical themes in the field and 16 shorter essays each offer a concise intellectual "map" of a particular subfield, along with advice on exceptional texts, reference works, and so on. These shorter essays are accompanied by examples of outstanding, classroom-tested syllabuses. The materials presented - representing a wide variety of disciplines, perspectives and institutional settings - seek to integrate such issues as ethnic and religious warfare, violence against women and minorities, environmental decline, weapon proliferation, trade warfare, human rights and a variety of peacemaking methodologies into the peace and conflict studies curriculum.
