From the Publisher"This study merits attention at a time when our country is committing troops on the ground to create "zones of security" which hopefully will eventually become zones of peace. Readers will be rewarded with ideas generated by accounts of those who have tried what is perhaps the impossible!"
"Zones of Peace is an innovative book about how ordinary people can resist violence and foster peace proposals, even in the midst of brutal, protracted conflicts. It explores a wide variety of cases worldwide: some of them inspiring successes, others disappointing failures, and several that continue to evolve. Zones of Peace is an important step toward understanding the lessons and possibilities of citizen conflict resolution. It offers signposts for how small but concerted, disciplined steps at the local level can make an elusive peace possible."
"A comprehensive compendium of experiences and reflections relevant to the current search for peaceful alternatives in the midst of armed conflict. People's security is an imperative for those caught in the crossfire of bitter violent strife, and this work provides hope as well as practical steps in addressing this urgent concern — from setting up spaces of dialogue to re-affirming sanctuaries of life."
"Provides a long overdue comprehensive account of the many significant efforts to create zones of peace during and after armed conflict. The systematic analysis, based on a theory of sanctuary, offers a timely and useful framework for peacebuilders and communities seeking peace in the midst of violence."
