This authoritative, balanced, and highly readable volume traces the rise of peace advocacy and internationalism from their origins in earlier centuries through the mass movements of recent decades: the pacifist campaigns of the 1930s, the Vietnam antiwar movement, and the waves of disarmament activism that peaked in the 1980s. The book brings the story up to date by examining opposition to the Iraq War and responses to the so-called "war on terror". This is history with a modern twist, set in the context of current debates about "the responsibility to protect," nuclear proliferation, Darfur, and conflict transformations.
