This volume brings together a number of important essays in the related fields of peace research, international law and international relations. Underlying the essays, and binding them together, is a quest for understanding the roots of human conflict and for probing the possibilities and limits of its resolution. Is it possible to establish, as a prologue to peace itself, some kind of honest scholarly discipline relating to it? Can peace research transcend prejudice and dogma? The book contains several classical expositions on the foundations of peace research, analysing both its possibilities and pitfalls, by one of its earliest and most lucid practitioners. The author, Charles Boasson's previous titles include "A Prologue to Peace Research", "Approaches to the Study of International Relations", and "Sociological Aspects of Law and International Relations". Peter van den Dungen has edited various work including "From Erasmus to Tolstoy: the Peace Literature of Four Centuries", "West European Pacifism and the Strategy for Peace", and has co-edited "Peace Movements and Political Cultures".
