Popular movements for peace are not new - or eccentric. Non-violence is a concept deep-rooted in the origins of great civilizations, religions and philosophies of the world. Traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judeo-Christianity and secular humanism are profoundly split, as often apparently permitting, as condemning, the use of violence.

Ian Kellas, with a fine-balanced use of text and irreverent illustrations, questions this curious schizoid attitude to 'war and peace,' which he traces back to the renowned religious teachers, law-givers and philosophers, and the ambiguities of modern humanists like Tolstoi and Gandhi. He examines the strategy of non-violent confrontation, the consequences of its tactics, its sucessess and failures. Is aggression innate to humans? I swar always unjust? Is peace desirable, always or at any cost? Can non-violent protest end the nuclear arms race and avert the holocaust?

An investigation of global attitudes and beliefs, from the ancient East to Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Hippies, CND and world wide dissedence. Peace for Beginners is instructive, stimulating, essential- precisely timed now that 'peace parties' everywhere are having political impact.
