Adam Curle’s pioneering work as the founding Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University has been significantly more important to the peace-studies field than is generally understood. Although his ideas were far ahead of his time, they have not been adequately taught and understood—in part because of the dominance of “realistic” approaches to political science and partly because his writings have not been readily available.

This book captures Professor Curle’s core contributions in an accessible, edited form so that the breadth of his work can become more available to new students and the next generation of world leaders. A unique feature of Adam Curle’s work is his stimulating focus on the inner spiritual and outer dimensions of peace making.
