Overview

In 12 new and revised essays, Boulding (sociology, Dartmouth College) synthesizes her study of civil society over the past half a century, focusing on cultures and societies of peace to balance the emphasis of most academic attention on violence. She examines structural violence in terms of the major institutional obstacles to a more peaceful future, including the tension between the states and the people trapped inside them, the tension between the technosphere and the biosphere, between global systems and local know how, and the overall effects of global militarization on human security.
