Education for Peace: Focus on Mankind.
Henderson, George, Ed.
This 1973 yearbook, designed for educators, parents, and other readers, aims to inform about issues of war and peace; prod toward teaching about peace; and encourage people to seek and live peaceful lives. Major emphasis is on presenting literary references and statistical data that can form a foundation for individuals who are trying to be effective peace educators. Each chapter focuses on schools and those who administer and teach in them, but stress is on concern for students and the impact that their school experiences have upon the ultimate realization of a peaceful world order. The book is arranged into nine chapters with ten authors providing insightful understanding toward the general theme of education for peace. In addition to a brief prologue, chapters focus on factors contributing toward violence in individuals and institutions; children and young students who respond to questions about ways in which they conceptualize peace; problems and forces operative in relation to peace and education for peace; the central role of international and cross cultural experiences in peace education; the rationale and goal definition for developing curriculum trends in peace education for the 1970's; parents' roles in peace education; and the man-in-society theme as it relates to the contemporary world and as projected into the future. Appendices offer additional sources of reference. (Author/SJM)
