Peace scholars look at the processes by which governments end hostilities, and the effects of peace agreements on societies. They introduce the available theories, concepts, and ethical perspectives to evaluating peace-making strategies. They include case studies ranging from the ancient Greeks to the late 20th century with maps and chronologies, and an extensive glossary without pronunciation.
