Adam Curle’s pioneering work as founding Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University was far more significant in the peace studies field than is generally understood. Even though his ideas were way ahead of his time, they have not been adequately taught and understood - partly because of the dominance of realistic approaches to political science and partly because his writings are not easily available. This book captures his core contributions in an accessible, edited form, so that the breadth of his work can be introduced to new students. One unique feature is his stimulating work on the inner spiritual and outer dimensions of peacemaking.
