Leaguer Authors Book about Peace

LWV member Rhoda Miller has recently published a book about the conception of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and its role in American political thought. The USIP was established in 1984 as part of the Defense Authorization Act, a contradiction that highlighted the political maneuvering involved in its formation. The history of the peace movement, peace education, and conflict resolution in the United States are chapters in the book. A study of the USIP's workings and achievements concludes the work.
