What People are Saying About This

Noam Chomsky

Impressive and moving, and very saddening as well ... A particular pleasure to read something not only sensible but even hopeful on methods of moving towards some decent outcome under what appears to be almost hopeless situations.

Elise Boulding

Fascinating! This highly condensed and powerful overview of the past and present realpolitik of peacemaking opens up major new ways to think about the seemingly intractable problems of state nation interface ... this book is a must for scholars, practitioners and policy makers and peace activists. (Elise Boulding Professor Emeritus, Dartmouth College)
