This study seeks to demonstrate how critical discourse analysis can elucidate the relationship between language and peace. It provides a view on the notion of peace put forward by peace researchers, namely that peace includes not only the absence of war or physical violence, but also the absence of structural violence. Approaching the topic from various perspectives, the volume argues that language is a factor to be considered together with social and economic factors in any examination of the social conditions and institutions that prevent the achievement of a comprehensive peace. It illustrates a framework of concepts and methodologies that offer to help guide future linguistic research in this area, and also calls for foreign language, second language and peace educators to include critical linguistic education into their curricula and describes an approach for doing so.

Industry Reviews

"Schaffner & Wenden have done an excellent job on the original and additional papers, producing a coherent and fascinating volume of interest to linguists, educators, peace activists and media students among others...The clear introduction motivates and excites the reader to continue and confirmed my initial hopes for the content...The chapters in the volume all have their own intrinsic interest. Together they present a well-argued and documented volume on the relationships between language and Peace." -Geri Smyth of European Journal of Teacher Education
