Searching for peace the road to TRANSCEND by Johan Galtung( )
30 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and German and held by 1,545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on the Transcend approach to peace making, Searching for Peace provides a comprehensive guide to conflict resolution. The TRANSCEND method, now used by the UN as a guide to future conflict resolution approaches, applies to all conflict constellations. It has been used in Northern Ireland; Kashmir; Korea; the Gulf conflict; Ecuador and Peru; Kosovo; Guatemala and Honduras; and China and Tibet. Searching for Peace provides a wide ranging survey of past and present approaches to violent conflict prevention, and includes detailed analysis of over forty conflicts as case studies. It critiques the failures of recent peacekeeping and peacemaking efforts while presenting the multi-decade research and arguments that underlie the Transcend approach. Aiming to include all participants in the peace dialogue, TRANSCEND offers hopeful prescriptions for the future
Peace by peaceful means peace and conflict, development and civilization by Johan Galtung( )
27 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Johan Galtung, one of the founders of modern peace studies, describes his reason for writing this book as a 'systematic effort to give a theoretical foundation for peace research, peace education, and peace action'. As such, it provides a stimulating and wide-ranging panorama of the ideas, theories, and assumptions on which the study of peace is based. Two definitions of peace underlie this major work. The first definition of peace is dynamic: 'the state of affairs that makes the nonviolent and creative handling of conflict possible'. The second definition is static: 'an absence of direct, structural, and cultural violence'. This authoritative and original overview is essential reading for students of peace studies, international relations, sociology, psychology, economics and cultural studies, and for all those involved in conflict resolution and peace processes
