Reviews and Testimonials

This book presents a variety of approaches to establishing universal peace through innovative learning practices. Peace education, as education in general, is socially directed and has its roots in some social purpose. Pandey and Upadhyay assert the absolute necessity of remaining conscious of the social intent we want peace education to serve the central problem being violence in its various forms. As well, there is the need to identify the social problems we wish to address and then determine the relevant educational goals, beginning with the value-base of peace, human rights, and democracy.
