This theory-based introduction to peace studies provides comprehensive coverage of theories relevant to peace studies: peace; conflict; development; civilizations; and economics. Johan Galtung provides an analogy between peace studies and health studies, and makes a strong case for a highly transdisciplinary approach. Major themes include: the direct-structural-cultural-violence triangle; the "eight-fold path" to peace; the military dimension; the economic dimension; the political dimension; the cultural dimension; and the carriers of peace strategies - elites and non-elites.
