The Politics of Peace
A Global Cold War History
"The Politics of Peace" explores the emergence of peace as both an ideal and a practical aspect of international relations during the early cold war. This book highlights the interactions between three global actors: cold war states, peace advocacy groups, and anti-colonial liberationists. These transnational networks challenged and eventually undermined the cold war order by addressing the violence of national liberation movements in the Third World. "The Politics of Peace" reveals the fractures that emerged within each cold war camp as activists challenged their own governments and each other over the best ways to achieve global peace.
