Peacebook: A Resource Guide for Peace Studies at U.C. Berkeley, 1982-83 [and] 1983-84.
Peace Studies Student Association.
A series of essays and lists of resource materials as well as courses relevant to peace studies at the University of California Berkeley are presented in the two guides. Topics of the 1982-83 guide include the undergraduate major in Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS), a proposed curriculum, core courses, concentration area courses (social systems, culture and ideology, and natural environment) and the graduate program in PACS with a focus on global economy, ecology, technology and society, development in the Third World, international relations, social systems and social justice, health care, media, and values, beliefs, and human nature. The essays, written by Berkeley faculty, students, and members of the Peace Studies Project, describe the work toward a peace studies curriculum, a plan for peace institutes, and careers in peace. The 1983-84 guide contains the approved PACS program description, curriculum, and requirements and an update on the Peace Studies Project. Essays examine field work in peace studies, reflections on military ideology, the undermining of civil disobedience as a means of social change, peace theory and Marxist thought, Ghandi's approach to conflict, and funding policies of the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation.
