Ethics & International Affairs Volume 4 (1990): Articles: Peace Studies: Social Movement or Intellectual Discipline? [Abstract]

Dec 2, 1990

Introduced by a few small religious liberal-arts colleges in the 1940s, the reformist movement toward studying peace has recently gained momentum in larger academic auditoriums.
