sinopsis

In Peace in World History, Peter N. Stearns examines the ideas of peace that have existed throughout history, and how societies have sought to put them into practice. Beginning with the status of peace in early hunter-gatherer and agricultural societies, and continuing through the present day, the narrative gives students a clear view of the ways people across the world have understood and striven to achieve peace throughout history. Topics covered include:

Comparison of the ‘pax Romana’ and ‘pax Sinica’ of Rome and China
Concepts of peace in Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, and their historical impact
The place of peace in the periods of expanding empires
The emergence, starting in the 19th century, of formal schemes to promote peace amid increasingly destructive technologies for warfare.
