Description: In his history of peace movements and traditions in the U.S. and Europe, from the formation of the first peace societies in the 19th century to present resistance to the Iraq war, David Cortright aims to "forge a synthesis among peacemaking traditions" and to show the practical effectiveness of peacemaking responses to violent conflict. The cold war itself, Cortright contends, "was ended not by military build-ups but by Mikhail Gorbachev's 'new thinking,' which broke decisively with the logic of militarism, and by the pressures of disarmament activism, which created a political climate conducive to arms reduction and East- West understanding."
