Description - Keeping the Peace by Graham Kemp

Certain societies can be referred to as peaceful not because physical aggression is totally absent but because it only occurs at low levels or because the belief system has potent non-violence or anti-violent aspects. This book highlights the existence of such societies combining theory and case studies of particular groups, to look at how they deal with conflict with a view to distilling lessons about peacemaking in a global context. The Hopi settle a bitter dispute with a tug-o-war, the Nubians equitably divide resources by "putting a stone in the middle," the Rotuman Islanders publicly apologize for wrongdoings. Peaceful societies range in size and political organization from small hunting-and-gathering bands to industrial nations. These societies have important lessons to teach us about managing conflict and creating peace.
