Introducing students to the scientific study of peace and war, Conflict, War, and Peace: An Introduction to Scientific Research, edited by Sara McLaughlin Mitchell and John A. Vasquez, provides an overview of current scholarship in this dynamic area of study.

Sudan has been at war with itself for the last forty years, except for a ten-year period of peace from 1972 to 1983. This book traces the root causes of the Sudanese conflict: the remnants of slave culture and the rift between North and South, exacerbated by a conflict of culture and religion. Despite past divisions, the author identifies new points of departure in the conflict, particularly after the agreement reached by John Garang de Marbos in the South and the leadership of the Northern parties. The main tenets of this agreement are: recognition of the country's religious and cultural diversity, separation between religion and the state, recognition of citizenship as the sole determinant of political rights and duties, and radical restructuring of the state as a quasi-confederal state. The author avers that these measures hold the last chance for Sudan to be united.

How Britain, standing alone, persevered in the face of near-certain defeat at the hands of Nazi Germany From the comfortable distance of seven decades, it is quite easy to view the victory of the Allies over Hitler's Germany as inevitable. But in 1940 Great Britain's defeat loomed perilously close, and no other nation stepped up to confront the Nazi threat. In this cogently argued book, Robin Prior delves into the documents of the time--war diaries, combat reports, Home Security's daily files, and much more--to uncover how Britain endured a year of menacing crises. The book reassesses key events of 1940--crises that were recognized as such at the time and others not fully appreciated. Prior examines Neville Chamberlain's government, Churchill's opponents, the collapse of France, the Battle of Britain, and the Blitz. He looks critically at the position of the United States before Pearl Harbor, and at Roosevelt's response to the crisis. Prior concludes that the nation was saved through a combination of political leadership, British Expeditionary Force determination and skill, Royal Air Force and Navy efforts to return soldiers to the homeland, and the determination of the people to fight on "in spite of all terror." As eloquent as it is controversial, this book exposes the full import of events in 1940, when Britain fought alone and Western civilization hung in the balance.
