The Beginning of War, The Ending of War

Authored by Judith Hand Ph.D.
Edition: 1

"What if someone could convince you that we actually have the power to permanently end war? What if someone could convince you that once we resolve to make that happen, we could free ourselves from war in two generations or less?" With those words, evolutionary biologist Judith Hand opens her exploration of why we make war, when we started making war, and why and how we can, if we choose, move forward into a future without war. In accessible, clear language, Hand marshals knowledge and insight from biological, cultural, and political sciences to persuasively make her case. The depth and breadth of knowledge covered makes it essential reading for anyone interested in war and peace. The notion that we might actually be able to abolish war may seem-may in fact be-utopian, but Dr. Hand explains why and how this achievement is possible. Shift: The Beginning of War, The Ending of War demonstrates that the current century blesses us with a rare but narrowing opportunity to achieve what generations before us could not. As one reader wrote: "Judith Hand invites each and every one of us who cares about the future of the
human family to take part in this historical psychological, social, and institutional shift toward resolving differences through law with justice instead of bullets and bombs.
