The first four published books in this series are Will War Ever End?, The End of War, Peaceful Revolution, and The Art of Waging Peace.

Chappell serves as the Peace Leadership Director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Lecturing across the country and internationally, he also teaches college courses and workshops on Peace Leadership.
