Wide-ranging essays explore issues including the eradication of violence, conflict transformation, resistance to taxation for the military, global terrorism and global hegemony, nonviolent revolutions, learning from nature, sport and conflict transformation, diplomacy, the financial crisis, prejudice towards schizophrenia, Obama's Nobel peace prize speech, peace journalism, and moving from violent to peace-oriented masculinities. There are commentaries on Galtung's own work and local studies on Colombia, Nepal and Thailand.

'A content so rich that it is almost incredible. After a deep introduction by the editors and beautiful forewords by Desmond Tutu and Narayan Desai (the son of Gandhi's secretary) follow no less than 34 excellent essays, also serving as correctives on my own work ... A major peace studies text in its own right.'
- Johan Galtung, in preface to 'A Theory of Peace', forthcoming.

With forewords by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Narayan Desai.

'I love to salute this peacemaker on his 80th birthday. I know he will celebrate it at many events in many countries. I am told that he will use all these opportunities as he has used his life as a peacemaker.'
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize winner

'Today [Johan's] extraordinary and exemplary labour is recognised not only by those who work for peace, but also by those who are directly engaged in wars. Not only are cupboards in UN and UNESCO libraries filled with books and papers produced by him, but his advice is often sought as an expert by conflicting parties.'
Narayan Desai, Gandhian scholar and activist

The hardback version was released in October 2010 and the paperback version in February 2011.
