Disarming Conflict: Why Peace Cannot Be Won on the Battlefield

by Ernie Regehr

Disarming Conflict: Why Peace Cannot Be Won on the Battlefield Ernie Regehr“Peace, no less than politics, is the art of the possible.” So writes Ernie Regehr,  activist and founder of Project Ploughshares, in his new book about the futility of trying to solve global conflicts through military force. Recent conflagrations have shown the limits of armed warfare; Regehr counsels disarmament and de-escalation as better roads to peace.
