About the Author

James Juhnke was born in 1938 into a Mennonite community in rural Kansas. He has remained a committed Mennonite throughout his life, yet his active engagement with American politics and culture defy the stereotype of Mennonites as politically conservative and separate from the world. Juhnke became a peace activist, a Democrat candidate for the U.S. Congress, and a provocative pacifist teacher of American history. During his thirty-five-year career in the history department at Bethel College in Kansas, he wrote books and dramas about Anabaptist-Mennonite history. He worked in church service programs in Germany, Botswana, and China. His magnum opus, The Missing Peace (2001), co-authored with Carol Hunter, is a revisionist, pacifist interpretation of main themes in American history from Columbus through the Cold War. Juhnke was married to Anna Kreider from 1963 to her death in 2005. They had two children, Joanne and Karl. He is now married to Miriam Nofsinger and lives in Wichita, Kansas, where he continues to protest against American militarism.
