Re Constructing Cultures Of Violence And Peace

(Re)Constructing Cultures of Violence and Peace brings together eleven original essays that were presented at the Third Global Conference on Cultures of Violence held in August 2002 in Prague. Covering an array of violence-related subjects, and a range of methodologies - textual, historical, theoretical, quantitative - the resulting volume is a multifaceted exploration of how cultures of violence are constructed, and how they can be deconstructed and replaced with cultures of peace. A common theme throughout the book is that violence is a fluid social and cultural construct - it is made by individuals, groups, and social forces. The implications of this are more than simply ontological: if violence is made, it can also be unmade; if cultures of violence are socially and politically constructed, they can also be de-constructed.

Can one woman bring about world peace? Read selected stories from Asian cultures as retold by Chandrani Warnasuriya in her book Peace Tales From Asia: Building a Culture of Peace. "What a difference it would make if we replace war with peace," she writes. The author is inspired by those promoting and working for peace both locally and globally. She was motivated to write Peace Tales because, "War and terrorism was prevalent in my country Sri Lanka for over thirty years; torn by ethnic and religious conflict made everybody including myself long for peace. Round-the-globe acts of violence and reckless killing have left thousands bereaved and mourning for loved ones lost forever." Inspired by her students, "I seriously thought about writing when I started to teach and work with children. I realized that children were the grass-roots level with which to begin work for peace in the world." Author Bio: From Sri Lanka, Chandrani Warnasuriya has completed her next book, What is Hallowed About It? A Child's Approach to Popular Symbols in World Cultures. Her blog promotes peace around the world, Chandrani86.wordpress.com. Publisher's website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/PeaceTalesFromAsia.html

Why is peace such a divisive issue, even among Christians? Why is it so hard to practice right here right now? Why is peace often considered an extra, rather than an essential, to faithful Christian living? The three authors decided to write this book when the Indonesian member of the team remarked to the other two: "If the Christian church is to make any impact on Indonesia, it must address itself to the biggest peace issue -- reconciliation with Muslims." But before the writers could honestly consider that explosive possibility, they first had to ask why Christians find it so difficult to live peaceably with other Christians. They've discovered that conflict is often a prerequisite of peace. They grant that peace is a continuum -- easier to live in some areas of life than in others. They've learned that peace has two parents -- hard work and grace. Living in peace is muscular activity. The authors suggest how to develop "peacemaking reflexes"; how churches "can learn to handle conflict well"; and how to cultivate vulnerability and humility, two essential "attitudes of peacemakers." True stories from communities around the world support this hopeful but strenuous call to faithful living.

Around the world, thousands of grassroots movements are confronting issues like destruction of the environment, economic depression, human rights violations, religious fundamentalism, and war. This book tells the courageous story of one such group. Organizing in 1939, Northern Baptists formed the Baptist Pacifist Fellowship as part of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Southern Baptists formed a parallel body. Like today, it was a time when sources of hope seemed hard to find. Discerning a need to support and connect Baptist conscientious objectors in the United States, members faced hostility in congregations and the nation. For the duration of the Second World War, the Korean War, war in Vietnam and elsewhere, Baptists sustained a witness for peace and justice. By 1984, threat of nuclear weapons led to formation of a wider circle of resistance to the culture of war. Subsequently, the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America has brought together Baptist peacemakers from around North America and the world. However small in numbers or reviled, members have been building a culture of peace through an interracial and international community. This book is an invaluable resource for those seeking a new world of forgiveness, respect for human rights, nonviolence, and peace.
