Tromp, Hylke, Ed.
This yearbook will provide teachers and researchers interested in peace and conflict studies with practical information. There are three major sections. The first section deals with "Approaches to Teaching and Research." How the electronic revolution has transformed the identification of, location of, and access to information on peace and conflict studies is examined. Included is a discussion of search strategies, data bases, and sources of information. A list of descriptors for information processing in peace research is provided. Approaches to the study of war are presented. A literature review and bibliography on war are also included. Section two of the yearbook contains "Bibliographical Studies." A bibliographic survey of the United Nations on the relationship between disarmament and development is presented. The concluding section of the yearbook examines "Institutional Developments." The activities of the International Peace Research Association are described. Regional and national developments are examined. For example, there is a discussion of how Soviet organizations are dealing with the problems of peace, trends in peace and conflict research in France, and recent institutional developments in Latin America.
