Shalit draws on the research he conducted as field psychologist in the Israeli military to offer an original behavioral model of combat that accounts for the fighting potential of an individual or group. His model is based on the appraisal process that the individual undertakes in combat conditions to assess a situation, whether it concerns him or not and regardless of his role. It is through this process that the individual makes a judgment, taking into consideration his past experience, knowledge, and expectations, that in turn leads to a course of action.

Envisaging CENTURIES, Great Philosophers Have Noted That Ry Repeats Itself. Sadly, in Certain Areas of the World, This Can Make a History of Conflict Difficult to Overcome. Many International Educators Today Believe That Encouraging Peace and Cooperation in Areas of Conflict Is a Priority to Create a New History for Our World- the Kind That Should Be Repeated Rather Than the Kind We'd like to Forget. This Issue's Cover Story "Peace Pathways," by Dana Wilkie, Which Is the Fourth in an Occasional Feature Series about Peace and Social Justice Issues in International Education, Focuses on How International Educators Are Taking Students to Areas of Conflict like Northern Ireland, Nepal, Kosovo, and Middle East to Help Create a New Tradition of Peacebuilding. Although Some of These Regions Are Officially "At Peace," There Are Still Wounds from Conflict That Have to Be Healed.
