With the development of the atomic bomb, Albert Einstein remarked that everything had changed except our thinking about the world. Einstein and Bertrand Russell warned us that ""we have to learn to think in a new way ...shall we put an end to the human race; or shall we renounce war?"" Unfortunately, we are facing the end of this century still in the midst of wars of various motivations. In response, the editors of ""Rethinking Peace"" have compiled a collection of essays designed to encourage readers to think differently about the world and the prospects for peace. Based on scholarly work, these essays nevetheless have been written to be read by students- to make important points in a short space. With an emphasis on new thinking and positive strategies for developing a more peaceful world, the authors explore why conventional politics and generations of peace movements have not quelled our fascination with militarism; how we got to where we are now; the kind of thinking that keeps leading us to war; and how we can fundamentally change our thinking so that a peaceful future is more than a pipedream.
