Post-Cold War Peace Psychology by Daniel J. Christie

Book Description

The domain of peace psychology is delineated by scholars from around the world who demonstrate how the focal concerns of the field vary with geohistoricalcontext: some being primarily concerned with patterns of behavior and cognition involved in the prevention of violent episodes; and others with the amelioration of structural violence. A systems perspective is used as a framework for integrating episodes and structures of violence and peace. Articles emphasizing "systemic violence" underscore the interplay of structures and episodes of violence. Articles on "systemic peacebuilding"examine the nonviolent management of conflict, and movement toward socially just structures that yield cooperative and equitable relationships across levels, from interpersonal to intergroup.
