Bibliography on World Conflict and Peace: Second Edition.
Boulding, Elise, Comp.; And Others
More than 1,000 entries organized in 26 major categories in the field of conflict and peace studies are presented in this bibliography. Compiled as an aid to teachers, students, researchers, activists, journalists, practitioners, and policy makers, the bibliography lists relevant bibliographies, abstracts, collections, annuals, series, and periodicals published from 1945 through 1978. The emphasis is on global systems; however, the structures and processes of conflict and peace making are covered at all levels from interpersonal to international. Material is drawn from the disciplines of sociology, political science, anthropology, geography, history, psychology, and the humanities. Four sections comprise the bibliography: The Main Listing; Collections, Annuals, and Series; Periodicals; and Bibliographies. The Main Listing, which comprises the major part of the document, includes monographs, compilations, and a few articles from scholarly journals. Entries are arranged by author; subject-category labels appear in the margin, and a subject guide precedes the main listing. Categories include conflict, crises, disarmament, economic relations, international law, international organizations, futures, military, protest, research, terrorism, violence, and warfare. The last three sections list major, more specialized works. These sections cover topics not emphasized in the main listing: foreign policy studies, international economics, military sociology, and case studies of conflicts. (Author/KC)
