Different strands of violence spread globally like epidemics, and some social theorists argue that religion foments violence. The contributors of this volume investigate not only human beings’ potentialities for violence and terrorism, but also for counter-terrorism and peace. They share with the reader their understandings, knowledge, and experiences of peace and nonviolence experiments set within different religious/cultural traditions, and the possibility of building peace communities around the world.
