Synopsis

The end of the Cold War promises a new era of global peace in which domestic reform could be achieved. Yet armed conflict persists throughout the world. Economic inequality, declining public services, environmental degradation, and other forms of domestic decay threaten the quality of life in the U.S. In "Peace Politics", Paul Joseph develops a systematic comparison of the 'old' and 'new' world orders that links foreign and domestic affairs. By examining the issues that are central to any realignment of American politics, he offers a sweeping account of the possibilities and obstacles for progressive change over the 1990s. Acknowledging that all nations and people have a right to security, he argues for a global attack against a broad range of shared threats, including human rights violations, nuclear devastation, poverty and despair, politically repressive governments, and environmental threats. Joseph also addresses the links between the militarism in the U.S. and deforestation of the Amazon, the uncertain victory of the Gulf War, the effect of public opinion on security issues, the impact of peace movements, nuclear weapons policy, and the need for a peace dividend.

Linking war and peace issues with environmental renewal, stronger democracy, economic justice, and citizen activism, "Peace Politics" is a rallying cry for rationality, genuine security, and mutual survival. Author note: Paul Joseph is Associate Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Anthropology/Sociology Department and Peace and Justice Studies Program at Tufts University.
