The Peace Catalog: A Guidebook to a Positive Future.
Sweeney, Duane, Ed.
This guidebook to a positive future provides (1) articles and essays covering all aspects of peace by leading experts on peace and nuclear war education, (2) a directory and detailed information on over 1,000 peace organizations, (3) a guide to socially responsible investing, and (4) a list of related reference books, publications, and films. The first of 14 sections focuses on nuclear winter, the evolution and effects of nuclear weaponry, the arms race, and space-based missile defense. Section 2, "Empowerment," contains poetry, a personal account of a despair and empowerment workshop, a description of a network called "Interhelp," and articles about relating nuclear war to children and "Despair and Personal Power in the Nuclear Age." The next two sections contain articles on"How You Personally Can Prevent Nuclear War" and "How the United States Can Prevent Nuclear War." Sections 5 and 6 examine alternatives to war and parenting for peace and justice. Sections 7, 8, and 9 deal with education in a nuclear age, mediation, and the need for educated awareness about the Soviet Union, citizen diplomacy, and east-west relations. Section 10, dealing with the effects of military spending is followed by sections on converting to a peacetime economy, socially responsible investing, and nonviolent action. The final section, which focuses on working toward a positive future, concludes with a directory of peace groups and print and nonprint materials. (LH)
