Jurek, D. M., & Velazquez, M. (1995). Teaching Peace: Alternatives to Violent Play. Paper presented at the Early Childhood News, 7, 5, 39-40 Sep-Oct 1995. To help combat the effects of violence on children and improve the quality and nature of play, early childhood teachers can: define violence by helping children become aware of the issue, help children resolve their own conflicts, create a peace place in the classroom, intervene when violent play occurs, evaluate media and toys, and educate parents about violence.

Jones, P. W. (1 June 1998). Globalisation and Internationalism: democratic prospects for world education. Comparative Education, 34(2), 143-155(113). The logic of globalisation contrasts markedly with that of internationalism. The latter, with its intrinsically democratic foundation, looks to a world ordered by structures supportive of that functionalism which is embedded in accountability. Globalisation, by contrast, implies few logical imperatives in favour of accountability, but rather looks to the pursuit of interest on the global level through the operation of unfettered capitalism. Implications for the sustaining of multilateral post-war arrangements are explored and analysed particularly in terms of war, its causes and its prevention. The notion of peace as human rights in action leads to the consideration of multilateral agenda in education, and the stances in a globalising world of the key multilaterals in education-UNICEF, UNESCO and the World Bank-with conclusions put forward concerning their relative grounding in the logic of internationalism or, alternatively, in the logic of globalisation.
Johnson, C. E., & Templeton, R. A. (1998). Promoting Peace in a Place Called School., 21pp. Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Diego, CA, April 1998). To find ways to reduce, violence in schools, the subtle environmental aspects in a school that had integrated peace activities in the curriculum as a means of promoting positive changes in behavior were investigated. The results are presented here. At Peaceable Magnet School 42 kindergarten through eighth grade teachers were trained in peer mediation, and peace activities were initiated in the school. Afterwards, a task group was formed to immerse the whole school in violence prevention by integrating peace activities as a part of the ongoing curriculum. Researchers then compared what the teachers believed were vital factors in developing a peaceful school environment to the school environment in which they actually taught. Although the school had been focusing on peace for a year and teachers and students reported improved behavior, the teachers perceived a lack of support, and they believed that serious concerns still existed. Teacher were reluctant to involve parents as partners due to student behavior problems and from a fear of being blamed. The resounding theme resulting from the research was the grave concern that teachers still had about student behavior even after concentrated efforts to promote peace. (RJM) ED422648
Johnson, M. L. (1998). Trends in Peace Education. ERIC Digest. This ERIC Digest reviews the development and current status of peace education in the United States. After briefly surveying the peace education movement from its origins with a small group of educators in New England in the 1800s through its stigmatization as being anti-American during periods of hot and cold war, the Digest devotes more attention to recent trends of the 1980s and 1990s. During this period, peace education has taken on a number of forms, including conflict resolution aiming at reducing youth violence, anti-nuclear education, and role playing games, cultural exchanges, and other programs to promote global awareness. Most recently, e-mail and the World Wide Web have been used to promote the exchange of information and ideas. The Digest includes a list of online resources for peace education and a 10-item bibliography of references and ERIC resources. (MLJ) ED417123

Jeffries, R. B., & Harris, I. M. (1996). Peace Education: Cooling the Climate of Schools., 31pp. Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (New York, NY, April 8-12, 1996). This paper discusses peace education curriculum in the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Public School district. The peace education promotion has been in existence for 10 years and was created in response to rising levels of violence. Specifically examined are the uses of peace education at Fritsche Middle School, a school that has proven the positive effects of using peace education in reform efforts and has exhibited a high level of peace education practice in the school. The paper explores the perceptions of eight school personnel about the formal peace education/conflict resolution efforts that occur at this school and the impact these efforts have upon the climate of the school and the creation of a peaceful learning environment. The research also involved 18 students with varying degrees of interest and participation in the school's conflict resolution program. It explores students' activities that directly counteract violence in the school and examines the extension of these peacemaking endeavors into the students' home and community lives. The paper concludes by identifying aspects of peace education that are in need of improvement in schools, even those as successful as Fritsche, and discusses how these problems inhibit the effectiveness of conflict resolution programs and peace education endeavors.

Examines the concept of essentialismthat meaning resides "in words" rather than being assigned to themand suggests that essentialism as a philosophy leads to intolerance, conceit, and eventually war. A few sources of essentialism are identified and skepticism is voiced about the possibility of educating against essentialism in the near future. (JL) EJ435968Jackson, O. R. (1992).

Psychological constructs of international images a Japanese community study, 1963 [data file ( logical records) +]. Ann Arbor, Mich.: Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research [distributor]. This study was conducted during the summer of 1963 in Yoshitkawa-Machi, Japan. The sample includes two groups: a general population random sample of 287 registered voters and a group of 28 community leaders. The study includes a number of demographic variables: the respondents' sex, age, marital status, education, income, and occupation. Interest in the local community and degree of participation in local affairs are explored, as is the respondents' involvement in the political life of their community. Respondents were asked to react to certain world leaders and their countries - Japan, United States, Russia, and Communist China - and to abstract ideas such as peace and war by rating them on a series of descriptive scales. Another major portion of the study ascertains respondent self-evaluation, sociability, personal ideological orientation, and political efficacy.

Kukathas, C. (2001). Education and citizenship in diverse societies. International Journal of Educational Research, 35(3), 319-330(312). The question of the state's role in the control of sponsorship of education is addressed in the light of liberal political principles designed to keep peace and enforce toleration in culturally diverse societies. Some contemporary, self-described liberal philosophers argue for a much more substantial educational role for the state than liberal principles will really allow. Brian Barry's argument for that role assumes that the state can prescribe answers to controversial questions regarding the truth and the good life in which a truly liberal state would take no interest. Stephen Macedo is more accommodating to religious diversity than Barry, but his argument fails because of his rashly optimistic view of the state's effectiveness in promoting civic virtue and the possibility of reconciling that role with fundamental liberal values. Liberal regimes do not depend on civic education, even under conditions of diversity. Their life-blood is toleration and dissent rather than the widespread diffusion of civic virtue.

Kreidler, W. J. (1990). Elementary Perspectives 1: Teaching Concepts of Peace and Conflict., 273p. Designed for educators of children in kindergarten through grade six, this resource guide provides activities related to the concepts of peace and conflict. The activities are not, for the most part, sequenced and can be used singly to introduce concepts or to supplement other lessons. The activities also can be grouped into a unit of study, and each activity contains the grade levels from kindergarten to grade 6, objectives, the subject area it fits, materials needed, instructions, discussion questions, suggestions for additional work, and handouts when required. Each chapter contains a basic concept and poses several questions related to that concept: (1) the meaning of peace; (2) peace and community building; (3) peace and conflict; (4) peace and diversity; (5) peace and enemies; and (6) visions of peace. Appendix A provides guidelines for discussing controversial issues with elementary children. Appendix B lists 77 children's books with peace-related themes, and appendix C provides information of 39 curricula and other resources for teachers. (CK) ED370873
Kmitta, D., & Berlowitz, M. (1993). Evaluation of the Center for Peace Education Programs 1992-1993. Final Report., 130pp. Funding also provided by the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trusts. The Center for Peace Education is an ecumenical nonprofit organization that provides educational programs for peace and social justice in the Cincinnati (Ohio) area. In the 1980s, through a gradual process, the Center introduced nonviolence and conflict-resolution training into several urban schools in and around greater Cincinnati. In 1992 the Center began to offer college credit to some participants in its nonviolent conflict-resolution training. Two of the Center's programs are conflict-resolution curricula. The "Students' Creative Response to Conflict" (SCRC) and the Cooperative Discipline Program give both students and teachers the skills to resolve conflicts without violence. The Peer Mediation program uses trained student peer mediators to resolve conflicts that have already occurred between two students. These programs were evaluated in 1992- 93, with the SCRC's receiving the most attention. Direct observation and surveys of participants provided evaluation data. Evaluation of the three programs demonstrates that the organization is a valuable resource for reducing the potential for violence in the Cincinnati public schools. Four appendixes present details about the evaluation. There are 31 tables of evaluation data. (SLD) ED405390

Kisembo, P. (1993). A Popular Version of Yash Tandon's Militarism and Peace Education in Africa., 52p. This book is a briefer, simpler popular edition of "Militarism and Peace Education in Africa." It is intended to interest the African peoples in the problems of peace and allow them to discuss and debate the issues of militarism and peace for Africa and to suggest solutions. It is also intended to interest leading organizations and people working at the grassroots level in urban and rural areas in problems of militarism and peace education. The first two chapters show how, in former times, militarism was brought to Africa by the Europeans through slave trade and colonialism. Chapter 3 shows how militarism continued after independence under neocolonialism in these forms: state terrorism, militarism based on ethnic nationality/conflicts, militarism resulting from "pastoralist conflicts," militarism resulting from cultural and religious conflicts, and militarism based on ideological conflicts. Chapter 4 explores how militarism is still connected to the exploitation and oppression of Africa with the new strategy called "low intensity conflict" or "low intensity war." Chapter 5 considers developing types of peace education and proposed content of peace education. Chapter 6 proposes the content of African peace education, including African history and civilization, cultural and moral education, development education, and human rights and equality education. Contains 15 references. (YLB) ED396074

Padres Trabajando por la Paz: a randomized trial of a parent education intervention to prevent violence among middle school children. Health Education Research, 14(3), 421-426(426). This paper reports the results of a randomized trial to test the effectiveness of a theoretically derived intervention designed to increase parental monitoring among Hispanic parents of middle school students. Role model story newsletters developed through the process of Intervention Mapping were mailed to half of a subsample of parents whose children participated in Students for Peace, a comprehensive violence prevention program. The results indicated that parents in the experimental condition (N = 38) who had lower social norms for monitoring at baseline reported higher norms after the intervention than the parents in the control condition (N = 39) (P = 0.009). Children of parents in the experimental group reported slightly higher levels of monitoring at follow-up across baseline values, whereas control children who reported moderate to high levels of monitoring at pre-test reported lower levels at follow-up (P = 0.04). These newsletters are a population-based strategy for intervention with parents that show some promise for comprehensive school-based interventions for youth.

Kauppinen, H. (1991). Peace Education in Art: Study of Conflict and Harmony., 13p. Strategies for organizing and sequencing peace education programs in art education are explored. First, the concept of peace and the development of peace education are examined. The affirmation of peace as life, justice, and freedom contains four areas of study for art education: (1) human relations; (2) cultural diversity; (3) the environment; and (4) global awareness. Nordic Paradise, a peace education program organized by Nordic art educators, utilizes these four areas. The project was based on the principle that pictures are language. Students examined art works that represented human relations, the environment, war, political situations, social issues, and other relevant subject matter. The linking of art with other subject areas, such as history and science, makes in- depth study of aspects of peace possible. Peace education is a life long process and art education should take an active and leading role in organizing peace education programs. (KM) ED342709
Kauppinen, H. (1991). Peace Education in Art: Focus on Gender., 18p. Art education can be used as a focal point in studying peace education and gender issues. One aspect of peace education is the field of human relations and that can include issues of gender. Basic concepts of patriarchy, sexism, feminism, and women's liberation can be studied through art. Finnish art education curriculum provides three areas for peace education with a focus on gender: (1) art history; (2) folk art; and (3) mass media. Art history features an image of Finnish women as successful artists and creators of culture. Twenty-five percent of the art works cited in art history books are by women and in the history of design women's artworks are in the majority. In the study of folk art much attention is given to the study of decorative and utility textiles designed and made by women. Study of folk art also emphasizes equal achievement by men and women. Students study mass media by examining newspapers, magazines, television, and film to develop their understanding of gender differences. A case study concludes the document and describes Finnish women in various occupations, inclduing art education, indicating the continuous evolution of equality between genders. (KM) ED342710

Telling stories-rethreading lives: community education, women's development and social change among the Maya Ixil. International Journal of Leadership in Education, 2(3), 207-227(221). Peace negotiations culminating in accords signed between the Guatemalan government and guerrilla forces (URNG) on 29 December 1996 have 'ended' nearly 36 years of war in Guatemala and afforded new spaces in which survivors testify to horrific violence including massacres, military occupation, internal displacement, extreme poverty and exile. In this paper we describe the development of a women's organization in rural Guatemala that was created to respond to some of the psychological, economic and educational consequences of this war. The Association's genesis and current work reflect collaborative processes of interethnic and transnational non-formal education, community organizing and leadership development. While responding directly to social injustices-including centuries of discrimination and marginalization of indigenous peoples-and the multiple effects of war, the Association provides a context wherein rural Maya women are enhancing self- and community-confidence to act on their own behalf in the development of action plans for change within their local community. In this paper we discuss some of our experiences as insiders in a rural area deeply impacted by war, state violence and poverty, and as outsiders who seek to accompany them in constructing peace with justice at a local level. We document some of the challenges experienced in collaborations across multiple differences as well as their contributions to women's development and to their creation of more just and equitable educational programmes for themselves and children in their communities.

Lewinski, M. (1990). Perspectives on Peace: A Resource for Teaching Peace and Security Issues., 138p. Designed to help teachers discuss and explore with students the many aspects of peace and security in a rapidly changing world, this teaching manual examines the issues from many different points of view. Students are encouraged to examine the issues, collect information, and present their own views and opinions based on the facts. The book contains six chapters, each of which explores a particular aspect of peace and security. Chapter 1, "Perspectives on Peace," looks at the concept of peace itself and asks if a nation can have peace without a security apparatus. Chapter 2, "Eye on the Soviet Union," is an examination of U.S.-Soviet relations and the impact the two superpowers have had on peace and security issues for the last 50 years. Chapter 3, "The Human Condition: Poverty and Peace," asks the question: can a nation be at "peace" if poverty, hunger, and human suffering exist within its borders? Recent democratic movements in Eastern Europe and Central America have raised many questions concerning peace and security issuesnot just for the United States, but for the rest of the world as well. Chapter 4, "Democracy: The Road to Peace?" looks at these movements and studies the impact they will have on global stability. Chapter 5, "The Global Environment: A Common Trust," discusses an issue that many experts believe will serve as a bridge to unite former enemies behind the common cause of solving the world's massive environmental problems. Chapter 6, "The World Economy," examines the concept of interdependence and how trade and business relations can work to bring the world closer together but also can create "economic conflicts" among friends and enemies.

Levin, D. E. (1994). Teaching Young Children in Violent Times: Building a Peaceable Classroom. A Preschool-Grade 3 Violence Prevention and Conflict Resolution Guide., 196p. Noting that peaceable classrooms grow out of understanding how children develop ideas about peace, conflict, and violence, this guide is intended to help early childhood educators create a classroom where preschool through grade 3 children learn peaceful alternatives to the violent behaviors modeled for them in society. The guide is based on the assumption that efforts to break the cycle of violence must focus on prevention, and that peaceable classrooms provide the best possible foundation for helping children to understand peace as members of a democratic community. Part 1 of the guide examines the effects of violence on children, and explains the characteristics of a peaceable classroom, along with implications for practice. Part 2 presents practical ideas for teaching peace, including use of class graphs, charts, games, puppets, children's books, and curriculum webs, and shows how to adapt these resources to the local setting to advance the goals and values of a peaceable classroom. Appendixes provide position statements on violence put forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and Concerned Educators Allied for a Safe Environment (CEASE), and commentary on the rapid success of the television program "Mighty Morphine Power Rangers" and its impact on early childhood popular culture.

Leue, M. M., Ed. (Jan 1992). Challenging the Giant: The Best of SKOLE, the Journal of Alternative Education., 511p. Beginning in the mid-1960s, thousands of small alternative schools sprang up across the United States and Canada. These schools varied widely in programs and policies, but common factors among them were a disenchantment with conventional schooling, a desire to reform education, and (frequently) the belief that schools should be controlled by the population served, including children. The National Coalition of Alternative Community Schools was formed in 1976. Its journal from 1985 to 1990 was SKOLE (from a Greek word for the type of dialectical activity conducted by Socrates). This volume contains selected articles published during that period. Six articles profile small alternative schools: Shaker Mountain School (Burlington, Vermont); Sudbury Valley School (Framingham, Massachusetts); Metropolitan School of Columbus (Ohio); the Free School (Albany, New York); L'Ecole d'Humanite (Goldern, Switzerland); and Central Park East (New York, New York). Other articles and reprints discuss teaching the American Constitution; child-adult relationships in learning situations; alternative schools in early America; a high school student's perspective on alternative versus conventional education; community-building processes in a national coalition of educators; homeschooling, experiential learning, and the vision of John Holt; children's theater as education; refuting Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences; peace education; what's wrong with public education; the outdoors as "school"; movement education; teaching, learning, and schooling in the works of Piaget, Skinner, and Dewey; and comparisons of learner outcomes of children schooled at home and in school. Also included are four poems and three book reviews. (SV) ED356930
LeBoeuf, D., & Delany-Shabazz, R. V. (1997). Conflict Resolution. Fact Sheet #55. By teaching young people how to manage conflict, conflict resolution education can reduce juvenile violence in juvenile facilities, schools, and communities, while providing lifelong decision-making skills. Conflict resolution programs also combat chronic truancy and reduce the number of suspensions and disciplinary referrals. Their potential for use in urban schools and youth programs is obvious. Conflict resolution programs are most effective when they involve the entire facility or school community, are integrated into institutional management practices and the educational curriculum, and are linked to family and community mediation initiatives. There are four general approaches to conflict resolution education: (1) process curriculum, in which conflict resolution is taught as a distinct lesson or course; (2) peer mediation, in which trained youth mediators work with peers to find solutions; (3) peaceable classroom and peaceable school methodologies that involve the whole educational environment; and (4) conflict resolution programs in nonschool settings, such as youth clubs or community centers. Community centers, usually found in urban areas, often collaborate with law enforcement agencies and other youth-serving agencies to present integrated programs. (SLD) ED416301
LeBert, L. L., Calais, J., Cuevas, P., Fruge', H., Gardiner, J. C., Larmon, M., & Rees, J. (1999). Peace Crane Project: An Interdisciplinary Approach., Colored photographs may not reproduce adequately. Page Length: 8. To model collaboration and to "practice what we teach," a group of faculty members at McNeese State University in Louisiana developed a college-wide theme based on the book, "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes." This book was selected because of the importance of seeking and achieving peace in a world that is struggling and, seemingly, losing the battle to establish peaceful environments for children and adults. In the book the heroine, Sadako, is dying of leukemia as a result of radiation from the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima (Japan) when she was two years old. Sadako learned that by folding a thousand paper cranes she might be cured of the disease. Multiple copies of the book and of relevant videos were ordered for the curriculum materials center. Each instructor electing to participate in the project centered a portion of his or her instruction around the book. The final goal was to have at least one thousand paper cranes hanging in the education building by the end of the semester. The book was utilized in various ways in courses teaching remedial reading, content area reading, social studies methods, and mathematics methods. The interdisciplinary challenge of developing a unit focusing on peace is enhanced by the availability of materials on the Internet. The educators felt a responsibility to foster peace within their classrooms. (BT) ED440900
Lawson, M., & Hutchinson, F. (Mar 1992). Peace Education in Australia: The Legacy of the 1980s. Peace Education Miniprints No. 27., 15p. After a brief introduction to the historical background of the peace education movement in Australia, this paper surveys major events concerning peace education in Australia in the 1980s. Peace education efforts in Australia have experienced successes as well as setbacks, and that the fate of such efforts often is at least in part, related to national and local political forces.

Lawson, M. (Dec 1993). The Teaching of Conflict Resolution and Nonviolence in Australian Schools: A Context for Peace Education. Peace Education Miniprints No. 53., 17p. This paper is concerned with placing conflict resolution and nonviolent alternatives firmly at the center of peace education. A brief review of theoretical tendencies in peace education in Australia is offered, and how this is consonant with, and different from, what is actually taught in Australian schools. Some discussion also is given about the teaching of conflict resolution and nonviolent alternatives in schools in various Australian states. It could be argued that the practice of peace education in Australian schools in some ways has gone ahead of theory. Five emphases of peace education as set out in a 1984 account (Rachel Sharp) are: (1) peace through strength; (2) conflict mediation and resolution; (3) personal peace; (4) world order; and (5) the abolition of power relationships. The paper suggests that Australian educational authorities are now turning to peace education as violence in Australia is on an increasing spiral. Backlash against the Aboriginal population of Australia is described as the result of a misunderstanding of Australian High Court decisions on native land rights. Anti-racist policy and multicultural education policy in Australia are seen increasingly as synonymous, rather than multiculturalism simply being seen as celebrating cultural differences in food, costume, or music. Bringing together the traditions of conflict resolution and nonviolence training is a new direction for peace education. When conflict resolution is stripped of false associations such as compromise and splitting the difference, a clearer picture emerges of both the traditions of conflict resolution and nonviolence as life- affirming responses to violence.

Lantieri, L., & Patti, J. (1996). Waging Peace in Our Schools., 268p. The Resolving Conflicts Creatively Program (RCCP) described in this book asserts that schools must educate the child's heart as well as the mind. RCCP began in 1985 as a joint initiative of Educators for Social Responsibility Metropolitan Area and the New York City Board of Education. The program started in 3 schools in New York City and has expanded to more than 325 schools nationwide, serving over 150,000 students. RCCP focuses on three dimensions of creating safe and caring schools: (1) conflict resolution; (2) valuing diversity; and (3) enhancing social and emotional learning. Chapter 1 describes a vision of learning that promotes emotional literacy, conflict resolution, and diversity education. Chapter 2 describes the "peaceable" classroom in which this vision is enacted. In Chapter 3, "How To Wage Peace: The Skills of Conflict Resolution," and Chapter 4, "Valuing Diversity: Creating Inclusive Schools and Communities," the specific concepts and skills the program teaches students and adults are described. Chapter 5 focuses on the role of the teacher in creating a safe and caring learning environment. Chapter 6 describes the work of mediation in the schools, and Chapter 7, "Signs of Hope," presents the reactions of young people who have served as mediators. In Chapter 8, the parent component of RCCP is described. Chapter 9 describes the beginnings of the RCCP and its model. In Chapter 10, the peaceable school is described. Chapter 11 considers the importance of community involvement and the steps necessary to sustain the peaceable classroom and school. (SLD) ED410364

This paper discusses the experiences of teaching a college course entitled "Psychology in the Nuclear Age" and highlights how research, clinical work, and activism influence the professional role of the teacher. The paper sought to raise a number of questions, including: What is meant by peace education? Should teachers remain objective or do they have an educational as well as moral responsibility to state their personal positions in the classroom? Is teaching a course on peace or nuclear issues a political action? What do students report about how they are affected by the course? How do teachers handle the intense feelings that these topics may evoke in students? and Do teachers have a responsibility to help their students take political action? Contains 5 references.

This article reports on the authors' studies of change, illustrating the power and effect of metaphorical usage. Both authors have been involved in facilitating change in a higher education institution and in a public lands wilderness dispute. One of the authors was instrumental in the process of managing the closing of a large semiconductor plant, and the other author has been involved in the Middle East peace process. The authors' primary thesis is that metaphor has tremendous power to both define and shape the dynamics of change in organizations-destructively and transformationally. A construct for understanding how metaphor can influence change is used to analyze each case, with the basic assumption that those metaphors that evoke higher order feelings of mutual understanding and community within organizational constituents will lead more directly to organizational transformation.

Miller, V., & Ramos, A. M. (April 1999). Transformative Teacher Education for a Culture of Peace. Teacher training across the world has typically assumed a functionalist role in preparing individuals to stand in front of children in classrooms and impart acceptable knowledge. The limitations of this approach have led, in recent years, to the development of new kinds of teacher education which reorient the role of the teacher in powerful ways. This article introduces several transformative approaches to teacher education internationally. It also seeks to extend the notion of transformative teacher education. Building on the aspirations of the Culture of Peace Program initiated by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization), the paper discusses how teacher education might make a more deliberate contribution to the development of a culture of peace. The paper presents the characteristics of three innovative teacher education programs (in Bolivia, Namibia, and Egypt). Grounding the discussion in the movement from a mechanistic to a holistic world view, the paper uses insights from peace education, conflict transformation, and social capital theory to suggest potential ways in which teacher education might become a peace building enterprise.

The Pledge also acknowledges the need to respect the whole of creation, encouraging the attitudes and skills necessary for appreciating, protecting, and enhancing the earth. The Pledge helps students understand the culture of violence and stresses the urgency of action against violence and injustice in communities. The seven components of the Pledge are the following: respect self Others, communicate better, listen carefully, forgive, respect nature, play creatively, and be courageous. Three additional goals are appended to the Pledge: proclaim visually the commitment to being a peacemaking community through drawings and symbols, celebrate peacemaking through holidays and special events, and involve parents in all peacemaking activities. The Pledge of Nonviolence offers schools a vision, a strategy, and the concrete skills and values for becoming a peacemaking community. A copy of the Pledge is included. (RJM) ED421738

McCarthy, S. (1 September 2000). Ethno-Religious Mobilisation and Citizenship Discourse in the People's Republic of China. Asian Ethnicity, 1(2), 107-116(110). In the post-Cold War world, 'identity politics' is seen by many as posing the greatest threat to peace and political institutions, liberal or otherwise. In light of the carnage of Kosovo, Bosnia, Rwanda and former Soviet republics, cultural identity politics would seem to be a politics, or antipolitics, of the most virulent and savage sort. Yet research conducted among three Chinese minority nationalities - the Dai, Bai and Muslim Hui of Yunnan Province - reveals that the relationship between cultural activism and minority nationalist sentiment is not always so clear-cut. I show that such activism, which includes linguistic promotion and religious education, can in fact express claims derived from a national political identity, a conception of minority membership in the Chinese national community. Certain instances of minority cultural activism are efforts to put teeth into the party-state's promises of autonomy and to reject the stereotype of shaoshu minzu as backward and uncivilised. Such activism is thus a means of asserting minorities' rightful place in the contemporary Chinese body politic. At the same time, such cultural activism may cement cross-national ethnic and religious identities, thereby consolidating the material and ideological resources that make anti-state behaviour more feasible. Even when cultural activism shows acceptance of inclusive nation-state norms, minority inclusion may be limited by the behaviour and attitudes of the state, or by the content of national identity itself. In discussing these issues, minority cultural activism will also be juxtaposed with a very different sort of ethnic mobilisation, one which does pose a serious threat to the integrity of Chinese boundaries and the ability of the state to enforce its rule. The paper thus also shows how ethnicity within Yunnan Province can be a resource for anti-state behaviour, even when the aims of such actions are not ethnic in content.

The goal of the present study is to examine workshops of Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian youth conducted in the post-Oslo era with the aim of promoting reconciliation and peacebuilding between the sides. The workshops were organized by an Israeli-Palestinian organization, in the framework of a peace education project. In these workshops, youth from pairs of Israeli and Palestinian high schools met for two days to discuss social, cultural and political topics. Each workshop included approximately 20 youths from each side that were led jointly by a Jewish-Israeli and a Palestinian group facilitator. The study examines four facets of these dialogue events, using both quantitative and qualitative research methods: (1) structure of activities and practices of transformative dialogue used in the encounter events; (2) attitudes and mutual stereotypes held by youth from both sides prior to the beginning of the workshops; (3) mutual perceptions and attitudes expressed by participants during the encounter; (4) effects of participation in the workshops on stereotypes held by the Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian youth (pre-post comparisons).MacDonald, A.

Part 1 focuses on human rights and security and contains three articles: (1) "Children's Rights" (Annelise Droyer); (2) "Good Neighbors, We and They" (Willard G. Jacobson; Carol W. Jacobson); and (3) "Education as Part of NGO's Work" (Betty Nicolaisen). Part 2, focusing on ecological challenges, contains: (1) "Making the Children Participants" (Tatiana Tkachenko); (2) "Ecological Education" (Ludmila Voloditina); and (3) "Nature as Part of Education" (Julia Kipko).

Newman, M. (1994). Defining the Enemy: Adult Education in Social Action., 209p. This book examines the powerful and motivating kinds of learning that take place when one is in the presence of enemies, such as oppressive employers, bigots, racists, or polluters. It is intended for people interested in education for social action, community development, and political change. The book looks at this kind of learning in aboriginal adult education, trade union training, feminist adult education, peace education, and environmental education. It critically reviews some currently fashionable adult education theories, concluding that a number are simply too nice, too unfocused, too inward looking, or too mechanical to help people who are engaged in social action. It canvasses the ideas of a number of adult educators who have confronted and helped their learners confront exploitation, imposition, and injustice. It proposes some processes that adult educators might use to help people learn how to identify, define, and then deal with their enemies. The argument is developed in clusters of ideas. Links are made using songs, anecdotes, a poem, and quotation from a play. Personal accounts are interwoven with analysis and extensive reference to the literature of adult education. The afterword examines the author's own position in relation to adult education, social action, and violence. Appendixes contain a 140-item bibliography, glossary, and index. (YLB) ED376376

The Villa, The Lake, The Meeting: Wannsee and the Final Solution - ISBN 071399570X - Mark Roseman Allen Lane, The Penguin Press, 152pp, £9.99. In a villa, by a lake, 15 educated and competent bureaucrats sat down to establish certain principles that would dictate when and in what order millions of innocent people would be slaughtered. Less than 90 minutes later, they could be found relaxing in front of a fire with a glass (or more) of cognac. The meeting was held in secret inside a luxurious villa in Berlin, on the tranquil shores of Lake Wannsee; the date was 20 January 1942... As Robert Kempner, a prosecutor at Nuremberg, observed, they were "the gentlemen who knew the things you had to know". And what they knew, and approved, was genocide. (£7.99)
