Editorial Reviews

Louis Kriesberg
The ongoing great expansion and diffusion of peace and conflict studies and its applications raises numerous contested issues. This rare book, including many new and diverse contributors, illuminates several of these issues, which pertain to the evolving theory, practice, and pedagogy of peace and conflict studies. The result is an important and stimulating book that disserves a wide readership and much discussion.
Celia Cook-Huffman
Thanks to Matyok, Senehi, and Byrne, for giving us a book that challenges and enhances the Western scientific discourses that have begun to dominate the field. By making visible the kinds of violence suffered by those at the margins of society, in their refusal to over-simplify the challenges of violent conflict, by giving voice and visibility to those who work for peace in unexpected places and in unexpected ways, they make an important contribution to the field. This is knowledge that must inform our practice and our pedagogy if we are to meet the challenges of twenty-first century peacemaking.
