Abstract:

The essays in this volume propose peacemaking as an effective alternative to the "war" on crime. Criminology has traditionally been a military science, a science of war. "The criminal element" is the enemy. Repression and restraint are the primary tools of criminal justice, and criminologists study how to make those tools effective in the "war on crime." We are beginning to realize that this is a war against ourselves and one that we are losing. We need instead, to focus on how to make peace.
