Peace in the Ancient World: Concepts and Theories conducts a comparative investigation of why certain ancient societies produced explicit concepts and theories of peace and others did not.
  • Explores the idea that concepts of peace in antiquity occurred only in periods that experienced exceptional rates of warfare
  • Utilizes case studies of civilizations in China, India, Egypt, and Greece
  • Complements the 2007 volume War and Peace in the Ancient World, drawing on ideas from that work and providing a more comprehensive examination
