The year 2000 was proclaimed by the United Nations as the Year of Peace, and the ten years to follow, the Decade of Peace. The UN has issued a Manifesto for a Culture of Peace outlining the goals of the envisioned future. The world may have taken on a hopeful attitude for peace in the new millennium, and this work serves as a reference book to organizations, programs, museums, and memorials located in North America that are dedicated to peace. The entries are numbered and each one includes the following (where applicable): name of organization, college, museum, memorial or journal; year founded or dedicated; address, phone number, e-mail address and website address; and text that provides historical information.
