Overview

Using case studies to illustrate the peace-making process, the authors of this book study the effects of peace agreements on societies from the ancient Greeks' to our own. Specifically, they explore what types of peace agreements are most likely to avert future conflict, introducing the theories, concepts and ethical perspectives available to evaluate peace-making strategies. Maps and chronologies supplement each case to summarize key events, people and circumstances and to give the reader a complete historical perspective from which to assess the prospects for peace in the twenty-first century.
