The Art of Waging Peace by Paul K. Chappell

The Art of Waging Peace

“With chapter titles that include ‘How West Point Trained Me for Peace Activism’ and ‘The Deceptive Beauty of War,’ Chappell’s well-honed prose combines autobiography, historical analysis and reasoned alternatives to military violence. Chappell’s personal story of moving from waging war to waging peace places him in the company of past and current icons who believed that moral force and the forces of truth, resistance and negotiation are superior and more effective than violent military force.”

Colman McCarthy, Director of the Center for Teaching Peace, Washington, D.C.

Peaceful Revolution by Paul K. Chappell

Peaceful Revolution

“Everybody who cares about a better world should read Peaceful Revolution by warrior philosopher Paul K. Chappell. With cogent and inspiring writing, he teaches us how to heal the cause of violence, conflict, and injustice and walk the road to peace.”

Kit Miller, Director of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence

The End of War by Paul K. Chappell

The End of War

“Captain Paul K. Chappell has given us a crucial look at war and peace from the unique perspective of a soldier, and his new ideas show us why world peace is both necessary and possible in the 21st century. The End of War can help people everywhere understand why war must end and how together we must end it.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

 Will War Ever End by Paul K. Chappell

Will War Ever End

“The book you hold in your hand makes a powerful new contribution to our understanding of war and peace, and provides us with vital insights into fundamental aspects of human nature. I sincerely believe that the fields of philosophy, anthropology, history, military science, peace studies, and many others, will be able to build upon the concepts set forth in this book in order to help guide our civilization toward a world without war.”

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, U.S. Army (ret.), author of On Killing and Director of the Warrior Science Group
