Overview

The Encyclopedia of Violence, Peace, and Conflict, a three-volume set written by more than 200 eminent contributors from around the world, takes advantage of increasing, worldwide awareness in the public, private, commercial, and academic sectors about manifestations of violence in all segments of society. While the contributors do not use these volumes to make specific arguments, they do describe and clarify the developments in thought that have led to current theories about and positions on violence and peace. Our reviewers consistently note that while many in-depth studies of war, peace, and aggression exist, the attendant specialization keeps scholars from learning about related fields. No publication competing with the Encyclopedia of Violence, Peace, and Conflict can satisfy their need for a vast introductory work to such a diverse and socially-important field. This major work includes more than 190 multidisciplinary articles with over 1,000 cross-references and more than 2,000 bibliography entries for further reading which are arranged alphabetically for easy access.

Key Features
• More than 190 multidisciplinary articles with over 1,000 cross-references
• Article outline and glossary of key terms begin each article
• Entries arranged alphabetically for easy access
• Three-volume set with subject index of over 750 entries
• Articles written by more than 200 eminent contributors from around the world

Audience: Undergraduates, graduates, and professors in social, life, and physical sciences. Government, non-profit, and commercial organizations whose work involves peace or aggression.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the Encyclopedia is a thoroughly impressive work, well written, well organized and well presented...this is a work that no library of any program on peace studies, conflict research or dispute resolution can afford to be without."
Christopher Mitchell,Institute for Conflict Analysis & Resolution, George Mason University for Peace And Conflict
Choice
This mammoth set is a fascinating undertaking. It has well-written and well-researched articles, excellent cross-references, and a good index. The cast of contributors is truly impressive...the articles range widely (e.g., the impact of television on children, alliance behavior, the concept of evil, violence toward homosexuals) and because of the contributors' varied backgrounds, are variously based in anthropology, sociology, ethics, politics, and psychology, to mention a few. [It is] recommended highly for all academic libraries.
