Thirty-four outstanding scholars write about the etymological meaning and the religious, legal and political connotations of the concept of 'peace'. They provide firm evidence to show how adopting a multi-faceted approach to 'peace' could ultimately contribute to the search for a more authentic understanding of 'peace' across the world stage.

"No other book of peace studies provides such a rich, in depth, and wonderfully interactive conversation about our many understandings and lived cultural etymologies around a single word [ ] An extraordinary balance and contribution to a field overly dominated by narrow academic definitions, a must for our classes and bookshelves." - John Paul Lederach, Kroc Institute University of Notre Dame, USA

"A festival of epistemologies, ideas, and philosophies, one will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book, not only about the diverse and multitude philosophies of peace but also about cultural diversity and interculturalism. It is an invaluable and indispensable contribution to peace studies and social sciences and philosophy in general." - Alberto G. Gomes, La Trobe University, Australia

"While firmly rooted in the scholarly field of peace and conflict research, this book takes our understanding of peace as a value, as a state of mind and as a process to another level [ ] The Handbook is refreshingly readable and will intellectually and emotionally re-energise and inspire all who read it. An outstanding achievement." - Tom Woodhouse, University of Bradford, UK

"Dietrich and his team succeed in allowing readers, who compare diverse ways of making peaces, to elaborate their own reflections attentive to a reciprocal interpellation between different wisdoms, cultures and beliefs [ ] The book does not 'prescribe' to readers how they should think about peace, but opens the possibility to elaborate in an elicitive manner, from the background of their own 'bank of social knowledge' the diverse ways to transform conflicts through peaceful means." - Vicent Martinez Guzman, Universitat Jaume I, Castello, Spain
