Kirkus Review Optimistic without being starry-eyed, Bellamy believes that peace is a possibility but not "imminent or likely," particularly as international tensions have risen and reasons for war, including resource scarcity, have become more pronounced ... A sensible [...] case for pursuing politics by means other than war.
Mark Beeson, The Strategist There is a lot to admire about Professor Bellamy, which is what makes his new book the proverbial 'must read' for anyone with even a passing interest in the theory and more importantly the possible practice of world peace ... it is not possible to do justice to the sophistication and persuasiveness of the arguments Bellamy deploys in a short review ... this is a very significant contribution to what is generally an impoverished, deeply depressing and
all-too-predictable discussion of security issues. It really ought to be read by the policymaking community in [Australia] and elsewhere ... Bellamy has produced a brave and brilliant meditation on the most important issue facing the world. That's worth at least an hour or two of anyone's time, I would have thought.
Simon Adams, Executive Director, Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect The notion that peace is more than the absence of war has become axiomatic. But how do we build a world without war, atrocities and identity-based conflict? This insightful and incisive book by Alex Bellamy is a timely reminder that 'human nature' is a contested concept, that movements for peace and justice are as ancient and enduring as our more destructive martial impulses, and that a better and more peaceful world is possible.
Lieutenant-General The Honourable Romo Dallaire, humanitarian, author, and retired senator and general Mr. Bellamy's new book like his life's work champions the essential and attainable seachange required of our world for a future where all humans are valued equally, where conflict is preventable, and peace is more than our shared goal, it is our default.
Ivan Simonovic, Permanent Representative of Croatia to the United Nations In his quest for a better and safer world, Alex Bellamy, one of the leading authors on the prevention of mass atrocities, in this book turns to world peace (and how to achieve it). He bravely sails through the history of ideas and the actual history to identify what works best based on empirical evidence. It is equally intellectually exciting to follow his journey and to explore its outcome: short, clear and actionable Articles for world peace. This is a Herculean
effort and a great book to read. It is both timely and challenging: confronted with the increase of conflicts during the last decade, we desperately need an improved approach to the world peace. But can the proposals set out here work? The real test will be a practical one: let us hope that not only
academics, but also policy makers give this book a close look and test its Articles of peace in practice!
