Between War and Peace: A Handbook for Peace Workers

Excerpt

The peace movement is a worldwide movement, effectively organized in many countries. In each it has its special problems and special methods of work. This handbook is an attempt to collect suggestions and material which will be of use to American peace workers, particularly to those who are out of touch with national organizations and in communities where research work is difficult. No one can be more keenly aware than the compiler of such a book of its incompleteness and of the opportunities for error in it. But only by an attempt at a general survey can an idea be given of the scope and resources of the peace movement, of the many opportunities for participation in it, and of the number and complexity of the problems involved in establishing peace with the consequent pressing need for intensive work and for effective organization.

Indebtedness to publishers, organizations and authors is so obvious that acknowledgment seems almost superfluous, but gratitude for favors granted by many individuals must be expressed. Special thanks are due Miss Lucy Swanton for her help in connection with the chapter on Young People and World Peace; to Miss Sybil Jane Moore, Mr. Joseph H. Baird, and Mr. Mark Eccles for special research, and to Mr. Joseph Hutchinson Smith for work on the bibliographies. The book as a whole has been made possible because of the information and material on the peace movement which, through the cooperation of people in all parts of the country, has steadily accumulated in the offices of the National Council for Prevention of War during the seven years of its existence.
