How do peace groups promote peace, especially in an adverse environment?

When the United States embarks on a war, an intense patriotic ferver typically spreads across the country. Most powerholders and opinion leaders -- political leaders, military officials, news commentators, and corporate executives -- exhort everyone to accept and embrace a pro-war perspective.

How do critics of war* challenge the overwhelming calls for patriotism and tremendous pressure to conform? What discourse do they use to influence the public and reframe the discussion so that more people understand why war is not the answer?

These are the questions explored in this very accessible book by three professors of sociology and political science. To find the answers, they studied fifteen peace movement organizations (PMOs) which had grappled with five recent US conflicts -- the Gulf War, the bombing of Iraq in 1998, the 1999 NATO bombing of Kosova/o, the crusade to eliminate terrorism following the 9/11 attacks, and the Iraq war. In particular, they studied the narratives that peace activists used to challenge these five wars by carefully coding 510 formal statements from these fifteen PMOs and then rigorously and thoroughly analyzing the data from a variety of angles.

Confronting the Bomb: A Short History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement (Stanford Nuclear Age Series)

In "Contesting Patriotism," three social scientists come to grips with both the difficulties peace organizations have faced in challenging the U.S. government's military policies and with the growing sophistication these organizations have displayed in recent years. The result is an excellent work of scholarship with findings that should be of interest to peace organizations, politicians, and members of the general public.
