Francis A. Boyle, Baltimore Indymedia, March 6, 2008
Civil resistance in the age of Bush and Cheney
Civil Resistance to the wrongdoings of U.S. regimes has a long, and honorable, history. In his well documented tome, “Protesting Power: War, Resistance, and Law,” Professor Francis A. Boyle captures the essence of that story. He explains how “civil resistance” differs from “civil disobedience.” He also cites cases, where he was involved as an attorney and/or expert witness.

Protesting Power
War, resistance, and law

"If you believe Dante may be right, that "the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in time of moral crisis, remain neutral," you need this book....If you are concerned that our country lives by its Constitution and laws, its often-proclaimed too should read this book....If you cherish freedom, here is your chance to learn how much you have. A person ignorant of her rights has little advantage over those who have none."
- Ramsey Clark, Former U.S. Attorney General

Jonathan Power
Conundrums of Humanity
The Quest for Global Justice

“Conundrums of Humanity” poses eleven questions for our future progress, ranging from “Can we diminish War?” to “How far and fast can we push forward the frontiers of Human Rights?” to “Will China dominate the century?”
The answers to these questions, the author believes, growing out of his long experience as a foreign correspondent and columnist for the International Herald Tribune, are largely positive ones, despite the hurdles yet to be overcome.
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, London, 2007.

Howard Friel and Richard Falk
The Record of the Paper. How the New York Times misreports US foreign policy
The authors detail how the Times presented official U.S. government policy instead of what the authors would consider a real investigation (and how publication of the Pentagon Papers was the exception to the rule). Friel and Falk provocatively argue that the Times's front-page coverage of Iraq's supposed possession of WMDs may have been the result of Iraqi National Congress head Ahmed Chalabi "being paid by the US government to plant stories in the Times." This argument, combined with the other more historical examples, should bring much attention to this skillful work.

Beyond stereotypes: Violence and the porousness of ethnic boundaries in the Republic of Macedonia
The processes that are described in this article shed light on how so-called "inter-ethnic tensions" can be negotiated in daily life and how local society, at first sight fraught with negative ethnic stereotypes, can prove resilient towards ethnic violence. It is published in History and Anthropology, Volume 15, Number 1, March 2004, pp. 1-36(36).

Konflikt og kontakt.
Om at forstå og håndtere konflikter

Bogen er en praktisk håndbog både for dem, der håndterer store konflikter som hverdagens mindre. Den har teori fra flere kulturer, praktiske forslag og mange hverdags-eksempler. Og så bygger den helt på ikkevold og fredsforskning - pluralistisk og åben for både hjerne og sjæl.

Jan Oberg
Does the European Union Promote Peace? Analysis, Critique and Alternatives.
One of the very few systematic analyses of the often-stated claim that the EU is an actor for peace.
Intellectually and morally its proposed constitution is a great step backwards when compared with the 60 year old UN Charter. Read more here.

Humiliation and History in Global Perspectives - Special issue of "Social Alternatives," Vol. 25, No. 1, First Quarter, 2006
Progress can be made in preventing, managing or resolving so-called intractable conflicts if the roots of the problem are unearthed. While the global history of humiliation that unfolds in the following pages makes for depressing reading in one sense, in another it provides the framework for understanding how to transform such events into peaceful outcomes.

The catalogues go back to 1986. We have kept them unchanged for those who do research, for those who want to see what we said on historical issues such as Yugoslavia or the end of the Cold War. We also believe our publications are integral parts of the foundation's history.

Promoting the Common Good. Bringing Economics and Theology Together Again
By this TFF Associate and Marcus Braybrooke. "This book seeks to bridge two extremely important - but divided - pillars of modern civilisation. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone concerned about globalisation, economics and our civilisational malaise. We need value-based deep thinking like this to survive. And you can enjoy it even if you are not religious!" - says Jan Oberg.
