Praise for The Encyclopedia of Peace Psychology

“When I look at some of the other reference books that come to Reference Reviews, with their double alphabetical sequences, inadequate cross-referencing, no thought given to a choice of sought terms for headings, no indexes, no mention of useful web resources, etc., I am really impressed with the design of this book. ” (Reference Reviews, 1 December 2012)

“Summing Up: Essential. Libraries supporting programs in peace psychology. Optional. Other libraries supporting upper-level undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 July 2012)
