First published in 1999. This work's central thesis is that language, as historically used, has been a significant factor in creating political oppression, and economic and social discrimination. The editors argue that the challenge for the next century is to begin using language to inspire inclusion rather than exclusion.
"Schaffner & Wenden have done an excellent job on the original and additional papers, producing a coherent and fascinating volume of interest to linguists, educators, peace activists and media students among others...The clear introduction motivates and excites the reader to continue and confirmed my initial hopes for the content...The chapters in the volume all have their own intrinsic interest. Together they present a well-argued and documented volume on the relationships between language and Peace."
