Product Description Designed for introductory courses, Current Debates in Peace and Conflict Studies presents fifty readings drawn from major publications including Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Science, and The Washington Post. Addressing theoretical, methodological, and practical issues, the selections include scholarly readings that introduce students to key debates in the field along with more informal readings that help students to engage with the material and see how it relates to their daily lives. An excellent stand-alone text, Current Debates in Peace and Conflict Studies is also a perfect companion to the editor's textbook, Invitation to Peace Studies, or David P. Barash's Approaches to Peace, Fourth Edition. Each section includes a short introductory essay and discussion questions that guide students in their reading. Review The range of debates that are outlined here is impressive. I think Wood's text would work best in Peace Studies curricula where instructors want to instill in students an understanding of current debates in the field. --Richard W. Coughlin, Institution: Florida Gulf Coast University "This book will be a great asset for students of peace and conflict studies." --Nahla Yassine-Hamdan, Wayne State University " Current Debates in Peace and Conflict Studies is a pathbreaking complement to the small but growing literature on peace studies." --Clement E. Adibe, DePaul University "This book's advantage is precisely its contemporaneity. It uses recent texts and data to expose students to some of the most important issues in peace studies." --James Woelfel, University of Kansas About the Author Houston Wood is Professor of English at Hawai'i Pacific University.
