This ebook seeks to supply a variety of epistemological, coverage, pedagogical, curriculum and institutional analyses aimed toward facilitating significant engagement towards a stronger and demanding exam of the position that colleges play (and can play) in framing warfare, militarization and armed clash and, considerably, the relationship to peace.
