In this world, for one reason or the other, peace remains elusive. Differences--political and apolitical--keep on arising between individuals and groups, Muslims and non-Muslims. Whenever people refuse to be tolerant of these differences, insisting that they be rooted out the moment they arise, there is bound to be strife. Peace, as a result, can never prevail in this world. The book highlights the role, which Islam can play in maintaining peace.

Focuses on: what precedents there are for authorizing the U.N. to lead peace operations requiring some measure of force to achieve their objectives; and whether there are limitations in the U.N.'s ability to lead peace operations calling for the use of force. It is based on studies of U.N. peace operations, including (1) field study at locations where U.N. missions used force to conduct operations; (2) interviews at these missions with military commanding officers, peacekeepers, civilian directors, and line staff; and (3) analysis of U.S., U.N., NATO, and other documents and situation reports

The end of the Cold War was to usher in a new era of international peace and security. Instead, new types of conflicts have emerged and the international community has had to react quickly. New threats to peace have been countered with varying doses of peacemaking, peacekeeping, and, today, peace-building. This newest approach --- peace-building --- recognizes that the sources of violent conflict are complex and that human security and international stability will only be achieved by integrating political, military, and development efforts. Canada and Missions for Peace explores Canada's invol

The silver-haired woman walked away from her name and vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace". On New Year's Day, 1953, she walked ahead of the Tournament of Roses parade handing out peace messages. It was the beginning of a pilgrimage that would last eighteen years. Traveling on foot without money or possessions, with only the food and shelter offered by well-wishers, she carried her simple yet compelling message throughout the United States and Canada. After the first 25,000 miles she stopped counting. Peace Pilgrim's account of her journeys across America an

Several aspects of the Arab Peace Initiative represent significant and positive developments in the official, collective Arab view of the future of Israel in the Middle East.

Israel should also reject the "all or nothing" approach of the Saudis and the Arab League.
