The 20th century was the most bloody in history as sophisticated weaponry killed millions of people. And already conflict in the new century has taken a heavy toll. In today's world most wars are within countries rather than between states. Often, it is civilians that suffer most, especially women and children.

This invaluable No-Nonsense Guide is excellent for students, peace groups and activists. With tables, maps, case studies and quotes, it looks at how conflict escalates and ways it can be prevented. It examines the changing types of war, including the 'War on Terror' and ethnic conflict such as in Rwanda; the role of diplomacy and the UN, and what steps ordinary people are taking to re-build communities. It also offers ideas and inspiration for creating lasting peace.

Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.

World Fair Trade Organization

World Fair Trade Organization

New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
