"Thirty outstanding scholars write about the etymological meaning, the religious, legal and political use of the word peace. This gives astonishing insights into classical notions and hardly known interpretations of peace in their cultures. The result is a book fascinating for peace researchers and highly rewarding for a broader audience"--Provided by publisher
