"Packed with information for establishing an impressive range of courses." - Pacific Research "Provides unsurpassed resources for teachers... Anyone planning a new course or reviving an old one would be wise to start here... Regardless of the approach one chooses in teaching peace studies, the syllabi provide starting points for virtually any topic a student may want to research. I imagine my copy getting worn, stained, and dog-eared in fairly short order and remaining in active use long after." - Peace & Change"
