Peace Education: An Historical Overview (1843-1939). Peace Education Miniprints No. 101.
Peace education has come a long way, but its history is not very well known. This text gives an historical overview, focusing on European developments from 1843-1939. Cites the London Peace Conference of 1843 and the Universal Peace Conferences as examples of bridging the principles of peace and the classroom. Glimpses are given of a number of important peace educators and activists. Early educational and psychological research is illustrated with Jean Piaget's work. The text asks these questions of the future: "How can the culture of peace become a world culture?"; "How will the educational system face up to the challenges of an ever-changing multicultural society?"; and "Is it possible to create a world citizen?"
