In reponse to the large number of courses taught in my department on subjects related to war, I have decided to offer a special topics course on the history of peace and peace-making next fall. I have compiled an extensive bibliography of books and articles; I am aware of the studies available from the United States Institute of Peace.
Yet I still am having trouble identifying books for my students to use in the course which have any significant historical content (beyond the last fifty years or so). Any suggestions of such readings, still in print, which might be assigned to undergraduates, would be appreciated. Thanks!

Dear Professor Page:
Your request for peace bibliography, quite understandable given the relative neglect of peace compared to war, was relayed to me. I list out below a few representative items from my own bibliography; I'm sorry I don't have more time to annotate it for you. Note the names Kenneth Boulding, Johan Galtung, and Peter Brock if you are not already familiar with them: they are leading scholars in the field with many publications. You could also contact the Consortium on Peace Research, Education and Development (email@example.com) and the Conflict Resolution Consortium at Boulder College for much bigger bibliographies. Are you familiar with the Swarthmore College Peace Collection? It's the best, perhaps in the world.
I have included several items relating to peace brigades, which is the hottest' item in peace development now, with the failure of standard UN peacekeeping. I have written a booklet on this called PEACEMAKING THROUGH NONVIOLENCE which I can send you for postage if you furnish your mailing address. However, this is a very fast-breaking field and you may want to be in touch with Michael Beer at Nonviolence International <firstname.lastname@example.org> for newer developments and publications.
(I am emeritus, but still teaching, at UC, Berkeley: Classics, Comp.Lit., and Peace and Conflict Studies. Am also President of an educational non-profit (very non-) called METTA: Centers for Nonviolence Education. We put out a resource list with basic works on nonviolence you may be interested in. Order from email@example.com or (707) 792-4225.)
Best wishes with your course.
Michael N. Nagler (Prof.)
