Book Description

First Published in 1992. This book was written in recognition of the many physicians and other health workers who, since the formation of the first peace societies in 1815, have dedicated their lives to make the world a more peaceful and just place to live. The intention is to introduce the field to illustrate the main issues and avenues that have motivated individuals and groups to work directly for peace. The conclusion draws these threads together and considers some ways in which the health professions may contribute to peace work in the future.
