Here’s what people are saying about our recent #NoWar2016 conference:

“With a country that seems to be engaged in perpetual war, this conference was an important step towards reorienting a peace & justice movement.” — Bill Fletcher Jr, author, columnist, organizer.
“This year’s World Beyond War Conference was an extraordinary gathering of activists, writers, and community organizers — a critical step in building power and the step by step development of an ever more powerful and effective peace movement.” — Gar Alperovitz, author, historian, political economist.

We have a great selection of anti-war books, including our new one: A Global Security System, which has been receiving high praise:

“What a treasure. It is so well written and conceptualized. The beautiful text and design immediately captured the attention and imagination of my 90 graduate and undergraduate students. Visually and substantively, the clarity of the book appeals to young people in a way textbooks have not.” —Barbara Wien, American University
