About Peace Studies
In this class we think about the question of war and how to stop it. Our textbook, Introduction to Peace Studies: The Meaning of Peace by David P. Barash, explains some of the reasons human beings have wars and then introduces the concept of peace studies, which is a new field of study.
To complement and aid our studies, this website provides some extra material to help you, the student, understand the material in the text better. It also provides sources of information about various topics that you can consider for doing your term paper for the course.
