What's New and What's Coming

November 14, 2017

I make available the latest news on the culture of peace daily at the Culture of Peace News Network (CPNN) in English, French and Spanish.

I publish a monthly blog entitled Transition to a Culture of Peace: World history as it is happening. It is available here.

All of my publications are now on line, as listed in my curriculum vita.

My most recent book, Embrace the Fire, provides an up-to-date view of the state of the global movement for a culture of peace. To order a hard copy of the book, click here. To read the book on-line, click here. (Please be patient, because it is a very large file and may take several minutes to load.)

My trilogy of books on the culture of peace are all available in English. Click on the titles below to read on-line or to purchase as hard copy.

The History of the Culture of War

I have seen the promised land: a utopian novella

World Peace through the Town Hall: A Strategy for the Global Movement for a Culture of Peace

The books are now available in a Spanish edition published by Herder under the title Cultura de Paz: Una Utopia Posible. Click here for more information.

The books contain numerous Internet addresses in the reference sections, and many of these have already changed. For updated Internet links, readers are invited to consult the reference sections of the books available to read online on this site.

Readers are invited to play the "culture of peace game" and join the "culture of peace dialogues" at my website, The Culture of Peace Game. Unlike the present website, the new one is meant to grow as a dialogue with you, the reader. Please check it out!

Some previous additions to this website were a Letter to My Academic Friends concerning the challenges of academic work on a culture of peace, with an emphasis on difficulties and pitfalls as well as the potential for positive contributions, and Culture of Peace as the Alternative to Terrorism.

Responding to many suggestions, I have written a personal history of the culture of peace from my perspective as the consultant who designed UNESCO's Culture of Peace Programme in 1992, a senior staff member of the Programme from 1993-1997, and the Director of the International Year for the Culture of Peace from 1998 until my retirement in 2001. Both the history and the 1995 monograph on the culture of peace are now available on this website, along with many important culture of peace documents that are not available elsewhere. As of January, 2007, the set of documents deposited for research at Wesleyan University has been doubled, now numbering over 1,000 documents and 10,000 pages (see listing).

The full text of The Aggression Systems is now on-line here - all 500 pages. It includes a newly-published update of my review on the brain mechanisms of aggression. Please see the intro page for more details.
