Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230554075, Paperback)

This book examines the transformation of the discourse and praxis of peace, from its early beginnings in the literature on war and power, to the development of intellectual and theoretical discourses of peace. This is contrasted with the development of practical approaches to peace, including international and civil society organizations focusing on disarmament and later on humanitarian issues. Oliver Richmond examines the intellectual and policy evolution that has led to the transformation of peace into humanitarian intervention, and intervention for governance purposes.
