Taming War: Culture and Technology for Peace
Peace Power Press
Taming War looks at the causes of war. What drives us to kill our own species? Why do tribes and nations battle? How did the stone axe turn into the thermonuclear bomb that could wipe us off the planet? Why do we still allow ourselves to be led into the misery of war by psychopaths and second-rate politicians? Can we ever change?
Andrew Greig suggests that the problems of war may be solved by technology. His hope is that we can turn our technological skills away from war and focus on technologies for peace.
