A splendid series of pocketable guides - rigorously clear.

The Guardian, London

What matters is how conflict is dealt with - and this is the theme of this highly worthwhile book.

Estanislau da Silva, Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Timor Leste

New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.

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.
