Peaceful Peoples: An Annotated Bibliography.
Bonta, Bruce D.
This annotated bibliography includes 438 selected references to books, journal articles, essays within edited volumes, and dissertations that provide significant information about peaceful societies. Peaceful societies are groups that have developed harmonious social structures that allow them to get along with each other, and with outsiders, without violence. Forty-seven peaceful societies are described, including religious groups such as the Amish, the Brethren, Doukhobors, Hutterites, Mennonites, Moravians, and Quakers; Native peoples of North America such as the Inuit, Montagnais-Naskapi, Sanpoil, Saulteaux, Zapotec, and Zuni; and indigenous groups from South America, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Southeast Asia. Literature from fields such as anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, and religious studies are represented. Many entries deal with childrearing techniques and traditional education aimed at socializing children to mores of nonviolence and emotional control. Sections are arranged alphabetically according to the names of the people, and each section includes a brief introduction to the people and information such as their location, population, and economic livelihood. Each entry includes author, title, source, date of publication, and annotation. Also included is a title, author, and subject index. (LP)
