Book Description

These six articles place conflicts in Asia within the context of peace psychology, catalogues the diversity of conflicts in Asia, describes the inspiring success Philippine citizens have had in effecting drastic change in political leadership through nonviolent protest, and examines stereotypes in Sino-Japanese relations.

Research on two extremist groups in Pakistan-one endorsing and one not endorsing violent confrontation is then examined.

The concluding article contributes to the argument that Asia can provide novel examples of conflict that broaden our perspective.
