Examines the overlapping aims, values, and concepts in peace and environmental education.Acknowledging the dual notions of danger and opportunity that present themselves in contemporary social and ecological crises, this book explores how both peace and environmental education can transform the way we think and what we value. The book outlines the link between social violence and ecological degradation and the need to educate for the purpose of achieving social and ecological peace. Specialists in peace and environmental education offer a holistic and integrated approach on educating about these problems and challenges. They also provide educational strategies, such as curricular frameworks and pedagogical innovations appropriate for both formal and informal settings, and case studies and examples that illustrate their application.“At once compact and daring, this remarkable book examines a wide variety of texts that deal with issues of the Earth’s rapidly dwindling natural resources.” — CHOICE"This book offers the most comprehensive and cogently argued case for conjoining environmental, social justice, and peace education that I have encountered. The authors present a multifaceted vision of why such education is needed and what it might look like. I finished each chapter with a sense of intellectual excitement and gratitude. I look forward to using the book in my classes." — Gregory A. Smith, coeditor of Ecological Education in Action: On Weaving Education, Culture, and the EnvironmentContributors include Abelardo Brenes, Peter Blaze Corcoran, Ian Harris, Fanny Heymann, Patricia M. Mische, Isabel Orellana, Lucie Sauvé, Frans C. Verhagen, Arjen E. J. Wals, and Anita L. Wenden.

To see if nonviolence could be taught, in 1982 Colman McCarthy became a volunteer teacher at one of the poorest high schools in Washington, DC. In the thirty-two years since then, he has taught peace studies courses for more than ten thousand college and high school students. Large numbers of those students have faithfully kept in touch with McCarthy, often with handwritten letters, and he has answered them with the same seriousness he brought to his columns and books. The exchanges rise to a rare kind of literature that blends personal warmth, intellectual honesty, and shared idealism.The discussions range from peace and war to a host of other issues of social justice, such as the death penalty, human rights, poverty, the living wage, animal rights, and vegetarianism. The wide-ranging letters suggest how teacher and students co-create a world of more love and less hate.
