Peace studies seeks to understand the negation of violence through conflict transformation, cooperation and harmony by drawing from many disciplines, including psychology, sociology and anthropology, political science, economics, international relations, international law and history. This raises the problem of the complementarity, coexistence and integration of different systems of knowledge. Transcend and Transform: An Introduction to Conflict Work.

This brief overview of Johan Galtung’s life and work begins with some of his childhood experiences (such as his father being imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp) that shaped his determination to work for peace.

As Johan Galtung points out Since the end of the Cold War, the need to transcend war as an institution and to transform the underlying structures and cultural pathologies which legitimise and reinforce war and violence at all levels of society has not diminished. In fact, in many ways, it has grown stronger.

I am a student in a Peace Studies program and while Galtung is considered a father of the field, I was unimpressed with his book. He has a condescending writing style which was off-putting. But more problematic was his argument that all conflicts could be positively transcended. For instance, he thought that segregationists' decision to send their children to private schools, to avoid having their kids go to school with blacks, was "positively transcending" the issue in the 1960s. His approach feels mathematical in that it may have some internal logic but lacks any heart.

I am a conflict resolution student at Portland State University. This book is one of the texts that we use in our class. Conflict and negotiation are an everyday part of life and tools to help us to resolve these problems will make our lives so much simpler. I found this book to be an answer to my problems and a creative way to view solutions to conflict. This book gives us ways to apply theories to problem solving. It is a very important and valuable book and belongs in a=everyone's library.
