Impatient, provocative, and prolific in his pursuit of peace through research, publishing, and commentary, the influential Johan Galtung turned 80 on October 24, 2010, without the slightest sign of slowing down. This collection of essays celebrates peace in honor of this milestone. The wide range of essays explores issues including the eradication of violence, conflict transformation, resistance to taxation for the military, global terrorism and global hegemony, nonviolent revolutions, learning from nature, sport and conflict transformation, diplomacy, the financial crisis, prejudice towards schizophrenia, Obama's Nobel Peace Prize speech, peace journalism, and moving from violent to peace-oriented masculinities. Also included are commentaries on Galtung's own work and local studies on Colombia, Nepal, and Thailand.
