"The writers represented are somewhat more diverse than is usual in collections of this sort (they include Dante, Erasmus, Kant, Lorenz, and Rawls). Kainz has helpfully arranged the selections in six categories, each emphasizing a different means of achieving peace (ranging from world government to psychological mechanisms to considerations of justice). The brevity and accessibility of most of the excerpts, together with the fact that each is placed in context by a brief introductory note, would make this a useful resource for instructors who wish to provide their students with a historically sensitive introduction to this aspect of peace studies." -Ethics 100:2, Jan., 1990 "One of the striking things about this anthology is the tension between the idealists and the pragmatists. Bertrand Russell, surprisingly enough, isn't so far from Aristotle.... "Philosophical Perspectives" is immensely readable. It could hardly be otherwise, given the contributors." -The Independent (London), Mar. 14, 1988
