Development of Peace Education in India (Since Independence). Peace Education Miniprints No. 95.
Prasad, Surya Nath
The development of peace education in India is discussed in this booklet. Although India has made many contributions to the theory and practice of peace work (the non-violent movement led by Mahatma Gandhi), peace education in the form of university courses or special curricula for schools is seldom encountered. However, signs of interest in peace education are evident in the peace research centres, in departments of Gandhian Thought, and in similar institutes that have been organized over recent decades. Brief descriptions of these institutes are given. Books and journals from India and relevant to peace education also are presented. Contains 19 references. (Author/LB)
