Nonkilling Global Political Science

Nonkilling Global Political Science
by Glenn D. Paige
ISBN 9780982298305 (2009); ISBN 0738857459 (2002)

Summary: This book is offered for consideration and critical reflection primarily by political science scholars throughout the world from beginning students to professors emeriti. Neither age nor erudition seems to make much difference in the prevailing assumption that killing is an inescapable part of the human condition that must be accepted in political theory and practice. It is hoped that readers will join in questioning this assumption and will contribute further stepping stones of thought and action toward a nonkilling global future.

Toward a Nonkilling Paradigm

Toward a Nonkilling Paradigm

Edited by Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9822983-1-2 (2009)

Summary: The open challenge to the widespread acceptance of lethality and lethal intent trespasses the limits of an ideology for social change entailing a new scientific model based on the refutation of killing-accepting science. This volume brings together 24 authors and 14 disciplines (Anthropology, Arts, Biology, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Health Sciences, History, Linguistics, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology and Sociology) to seriously consider the prospects for the realization of nonkilling societies and to challenge each discipline’s role in the necessary social and scientific transformation.

Nonkilling Media

Nonkilling Media

Edited by Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9839862-3-2 (2013)

Summary: The importance of rethinking media and entertainment from a nonkilling perspective is self-explanatory. In "Nonkilling Global Political Science", Glenn Paige pointed out how violence is "socially learned and culturally reinforced". This social effort is by no means casual or due to some innate taste or demand for violence content historically considered repugnantbut rather, "violent media socialization is useful for a state in need of professional patriotic killers". Nonkilling creativity throuought the ages also shows how a life-enhancing media is possible. At the Center for Global Nonkilling we sincerely hope that the contributions compiled in this volume may help shape an alternative to the lethal ideology that permates media that may enhance the value of life.

Nonkilling Security

Nonkilling Security and the State

Edited by Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9839862-1-8 (2013)

Summary: The time has come to start anew history in this respect. We must establish reverence for life as the cornerstone of civilization: reverence for life not only by individuals, but also by institutions, foremost among them nations. Institutions were created originally for the good and survival of the people. This is their main justification and merit. They have no right to kill or to develop and stockpile incredible arsenals of weapons meant to kill millions of people, possibly all humanity. And the same nations come to the UN and dare to speak about human rights! Do these include the right to life and the right not to kill? Perhaps if we approach the question of disarmament from the fundamental principle of reverence for life, we might achieve better progress (from Robert Muller's Epilogue).

Nonkilling Futures

Nonkilling Futures: Visions

Edited by James A. Dator and Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9839862-2-5 (2012)

Summary: Contributors to this volume on nonkilling futures were asked to envision as clearly as they can the crucial features of a nonkilling world. The resulting diversity of approaches are visions, not blueprints or orders. And so, as we do move forward, learning more, needing more, incorporating more people with different ideas into our work, we will need to alter our visions even as we move toward them. That does not render the visioning process superfluous. To the contrary, without a clear vision, we cannot be sure about what our first moves should be since we are not specifically heading anywhere. As Yogi Berra might have said, "if you don’t know where you are going, chances are you’ll end up someplace else."

Nonkilling Linguistics

Nonkilling Linguistics: Practical Applications

Edited by Patricia Friedrich
ISBN 978-0-9839862-4-9 (2012)

Summary: Nonkilling speaks both to the goal of preserving the physical lives of individuals, communities, other species, the environment as well as the more metaphorical but also extremely important survival of languages, cultures, histories (oral and written), literary manifestations, etc. The list is vast and varied, and the good news is that a nonkilling mentality can be applied to all these realms and lives. This volume helps us start exploring the potential of the nonkilling paradigm when it comes to language use, education and legislation. As many are aware, language permeates most facets of human experience: we use different forms of language and literacy to establish contact with one another, to communicate our thoughts and feelings, to make sense of the world around us, and ultimately to realize our destiny as social beings.

Nonkilling Psychology

Nonkilling Psychology

Edited by Daniel J. Christie and Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9822983-8-1 (2012)

Summary: This book demonstrates the rich diversity of research approaches developed so far within the field of psychology. In this collection of essays, one moves from biomedical aspects to moral dimensions, through various renditions of social psychology. The book is organized into three sections: (I) psychological causes and consequences of killing; (II) The prevention of killing: from interpersonal to international; and (III) personal transformation: from killing to nonkilling. What brings humans to kill each others or themselves? Is a nonkilling society possible? Answers have been attempted, unanswered questions have been raised, and unexplored issues wait for further investigation.

Nonkilling Korea

Nonkilling Korea: Six Culture Exploration

Edited by Glenn D. Paige and Chung-Si Ahn
Co-published by Seoul National University Press
ISBN 978-0-9839862-0-1 [CGNK]; 978-89-521-1288-0 [SNUP] (2012)

Summary: In contrast to academic and policy studies that concentrate on political-military-economic aspects of Korea since Division and the Korean War, authors in this book seek to discover nonkilling cultural features in South and North Korea, America, China, Japan, and Russia that can contribute to realization of a unified Nonkilling Korea – A Korea in which no Koreans kill other Koreans, no foreigners kill Koreans, and no Koreans are sent abroad to kill. Discoveries reported here provide confidence that nonkilling cultural values and capabilities can be found in all six societies that can benefit each and all in progress toward the measurable goal of a killing-free Korea and world. Readers are invited to join in further explorations. This book reports on the Nonkilling Korea: Six Culture Exploratory Seminar convened by the Asia Center/Seoul National University and the Center for Global Nonkilling/ Honolulu in Seoul during August 18-19, 2010.

Paige who has completed eighty glorious years of active life in service of humanity, a new humanity where Nonkilling and Nonviolence will guide the destiny of this universe.

Engineering Nonkilling: Scientific Responsibility and the Advancement of Killing-Free Societies

Engineering Nonkilling: Scientific Responsibility and the Advancement of Killing-Free Societies

Edited by Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9822983-6-7 (2011)

Summary: The present volume raises an important question: what kind of science and applications needs to be engineered to work towards a killing-free world? Bringing forward a nonkilling approach to problem-solving, the diverse chapters provide insights into practice of engineering, mathematics, and physics, but are extensible to other sciences, pointing to the potential scope of new research agenda that could benefit from focussing on interplay between science, ethics, philosophy, politics, and human nature. As the reader will realize, the nonkilling vision of this book goes far beyond the normative stand of rejecting killing. It implies the constructive engagement in societal transformation, where all fields of knowledge need to be thoughtfully applied.

Nonkilling Geography

Nonkilling Geography

Edited by James Tyner and Joshua Inwood
ISBN 978-0-9822983-9-8 (2011)

Summary: Geography, in particular, can (and has) contributed significantly to our understanding of the various "spaces" of killing. However, to date, there has been no overarching, singular focus promoted by Geographers toward nonkilling. This volume constitutes the first, direct engagement by a panel of Geographers to think through the idea of a nonkilling society. Contributors were asked to think broadly, to expand our intellectual—and moral—horizon to question killing and nonkilling, violence and nonviolence. And in the pages that follow, readers will experience a vast array of ideas, an unfolding of a larger intellectual quest that has the singular goal of contributing toward a nonkilling and nonviolent world.

Nonkilling Societies

Nonkilling Societies

Edited by Joám Evans Pim
ISBN 978-0-9822983-4-3 (2010)

Summary: This volume arises from a crucial question formulated by political scientist Glenn D. Paige: “Is a Nonkilling Society Possible?” Paige (and much of the evidence brought for-ward in this book) reminds us that nonkilling societies, characterized by no killing of humans and no threats to kill, do exist in spite of having passed largely unnoticed to most of the scientific community. Most authors who are contributing to this volume have been repeating the same crucial fact for decades: killing-free societies, as those imagined by Paige in his book, are not a utopian dream; they are a genuine actuality that has been in existence for millenia. It can probably be said louder but not more clearly. This volume provides firm evidence that the only feasible answer to Paige’s question is undoubtedly affirmative.

Nonkilling History

Nonkilling History: Shaping Policy with Lessons from the Past

Edited by Antony Adolf
ISBN 978-0-9822983-5-0 (2010)

Summary: The surprise insight from Nonkilling History is that what did not happen explains why humanity lives today. This turns upside down understanding of history as the story of the victory of righteous or reprehensible human violence in struggles to satisfy human aspirations, wants, and needs. In the introduction to nonkilling historiography that begins the present volume, editor Antony Adolf advances far beyond such common sense understanding. He establishes seminal methodology for establishing a new nonkilling science of history. Such a science will not only help to explain past to present human survival but will inform decisions, individual and collective, to promote future killing-free societies that sustain and celebrate human life. The invitation to explore nonkilling history in this volume will interest not only young and old scholars in history and other academic disciplines, but will surely invite nonkilling questions by general readers as well.

World Health Organization
ISBN 978-0-9822983-3-6 (2009)

Summary: In 2002 the World Health Organization’s World Report on Violence and Health concluded that human violence is a “preventable disease.” It identified the belief that violence is inevitable in the human condition as the main obstacle to progress and grounded confidence for change in provision of contrary science-based knowledge, education, and recommendations for action by decision makers and the public in all sectors of local, national, and global society. CGNK to the World Health Organization for making the presentation of this book possible, reaching out to an ever widening circle of readers and leaders who can join in taking steps toward a killing-free world.

Quest for Gandhi

Quest for Gandhi: A Nonkilling Journey

by Balwant Bhaneja
ISBN 978-0-9822983-7-4 (2010)

Summary: At the southern tip of India, the small inlet of Kanyakumari brushes with the waters of Indian Ocean while Dehradun, capital of India’s new state of Uttranchal in the North juts with the mountainous ranges of Himalayas. The book, a deep desire to understand the meaning and relevance of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s inclusive message of nonviolent political action in early 21st Century, is from Balwant Bhaneja’s, a retired Canadian diplomat, travel journal about meetings in the spring of 2006 with individuals, young and old, across India who in their unique ways have been impacted by Gandhi’s life and have chosen to follow the nonviolent path for social justice and a nonkilling peace. While on the way to visit them, the journey also becomes a pilgrimage to some of the places, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed during the struggle for India’s Independence from the British Rule.

Nurturing Nonkilling. A Poetic Plantation

Nurturing Nonkilling. A Poetic Plantation

by Francisco Gomes de Matos
ISBN 9780982298329 (2009)

Summary: These poems by Francisco Gomes de Matos collected to honor the eightieth birthday of the great pioneer of nonkilling thought, Glenn Paige, both show and tell the same thing: that nonkilling thought, act, imagination, art, feeling, commitment, teaching, and career can be experienced, thought about, committed to, felt, imagined, and taught in a whole world of permutations and combinations far beyond innocence. Behind all this lurks mortality. Only in these poems mortality is celebrated, not feared. Like Glenn Paige, they demand intellectual courage with the smile of rational equanimity.

Since Nonkilling Global Political Science was launched in 2002, it has served as unique vehicle to share and expand the ideas behind the concept of nonkilling. Initial reluctance from major academic publishers to launch this piece of work prevented the establishment of a copyright monopoly by any single company. Because of this, Nonkilling Global Political Science has already been translated and published in fifteen languages with over twenty more translations underway. Additionally, five English editions have been printed in India, the Philippines, Nigeria and the United States.

These extraordinary accomplishments have been possible because of the voluntary dedication of translators across the world. This ever-growing group has already met in 2007 during the First Global Nonkilling Leadership Forum, where experiences were shared and discussed. The Center for Global Nonkilling has included among its priorities the promotion and expansion of this nonkilling body of knowledge, making it available in as many languages and formats as possible.

Translations are always relative, even optional to certain extent, and depend greatly on the translator’s ability to capture the true and essential meaning of the text and to conserve it in a new version that will obviously be just one among many other possibilities. This is especially true with new terms as nonkilling, extremelly sensitive as its misinterpretation can completely alter the significance and impact of the text. Existing translations arose through the initiative of individuals, institutions and publishers who shared the common vision of providing key knowledge toward global nonkilling transformation.

Even though the Center cannot provide formal stipends for translation initiatives, the author and copyright holder has encouraged the publication of these translations relinquishing his right to fees or royalties. The Center will also provide help and advice during the translation process: providing necessary materials, legal permissions, team structuring (project manager, translator and evaluator), publishing advice, editing and design. If you can’t find a suitable publisher the Center can also provide support to developing both printed and online editions of new translations.

Translating the full volume is certainly not the only option. Some initiatives have focused on specific chapters and others, as the Kiswahili project, have developed condensed versions of its contents to use in education and training. The Center will also be offering Children’s/Teacher’s School Guides that will also be available for translation.

If you are interested in participating in new translations of Nonkilling Global Political Science, other CGNK publications or would like to volunteer to help us build our multilingual website please contact our team.

Ни возраст, ни уровень образования и эрудиции не мешает людям разделять широко бытующее мнение, что убийство является неизбежным спутником человеческого существования и что это должны признавать политическая теория и практика. Автор очень надеется, что читатели вместе с ним усомнятся в непреложности такого представления и внесут свой посильный вклад идей и действий в фундамент будущего глобального общества, основанного на неприятии убийства.

Nem a idade nem a erudição parecem fazer muita diferença na suposição preponderante de que o matar é uma parte inexorável da condição humana que deve ser aceita na teoria política e na prática. Espera-se que os leitores adiram ao questionamento desta suposição e contribuam com novos degraus para o pensamento e a ação a um futuro global no que não se mate.

Summary: This book is offered for consideration and critical reflection primarily by political science scholars throughout the world from beginning students to professors emeriti. Neither age nor erudition seems to make much difference in the prevailing assumption that killing is an inescapable part of the human condition that must be accepted in political theory and practice. It is hoped that readers will join in questioning this assumption and will contribute further stepping stones of thought and action toward a nonkilling global future.

Presentación paraa la edición en México de Arturo Cervantes Trejo

Sumario: Este libro se ofrece, ante todo, para su consideración y reflexión crítica entre los estudiosos de Ciencia Política de todo el mundo, desde los estudiantes que se están iniciando hasta los profesores eméritos. Ni la edad ni la erudición parecen establecer muchas diferencias en la suposición preponderante de que matar es una parte inexorable de la condición humana que debe ser aceptada en la teoría y práctica política. Se espera que los lectores se unan al cuestionamiento de esta suposición y contribuyan con nuevos pasos de pensamiento y acción para un futuro global en el que no se mate.

Nonkilling. Wissenschaft von der nicht tötenden Gesellschaft (German)
von Glenn D. Paige
Mit einem Vorwort von Ekkehart Krippendorff
Translator: Anis Hamadeh (http://www.anis-online.de)
ISBN 9783937245027 (2009)

Zusammenfassung: Dieses Buch soll zum Nachdenken und zur kritischen Betrachtung anregen, vor allem Politikwissenschaftler in der ganzen Welt, vom Erstsemester-Studenten bis hin zum Professor Emeritus. Weder Alter noch Belesenheit scheint einen großen Einfluss auf die vorherrschende Annahme zu nehmen, dass das Töten ein unvermeidlicher Teil der menschlichen Natur ist, der in politischer Theorie und Praxis akzeptiert werden muss. Es ist zu hoffen, dass sich die Leserinnen und Leser daran beteiligen, diese Annahme zu hinterfragen und weitere Ideen und Taten beizusteuern, als Sprungbretter für eine Zukunft des globalen Nichttötens.

Nonuccidere: Una nuova scienza politica globale (Italian)
per Glenn D. Paige
Prefazione di Antonio Papisca
Edizione italiana a cura di Prisca Giaiero
ISBN 8830719040 (2010)

Contenuti: Tutta la scienza politica è costruita sul presupposto che l’uso della forza è necessario. Tuttavia, diverse ricerche scientifiche in campo biologico e culturale hanno concluso che gli esseri umani sono altrettanto capaci di non uccidere. Secondo Glenn D. Paige le istituzioni che hanno dimostrato una capacità di soluzione pacifica dei conflitti possono organizzarsi per contribuire allo sviluppo di una civiltà nonletale. Questo è il suo contributo alla rivisitazione globale delle scienze politiche, nella loro organizzazione accademica e nel loro ruolo sociale.

Rezime: Ova knjiga je ponuđena na razmišljanje i kritičko razmatranje uglavnom od strane stručnjaka političke nauke cijeloga svijeta, od studenata početnika do penzionisanih profesora. Ni starosna dob, niti učenost, čini se, ne prave veliku razliku u prevladavanju pretpostavke da je ubijanje neizbježan dio ljudskog stanja, koje mora biti prihvaćeno u političkoj teoriji i praksi. Nadati se je da će čitaoci sudjelovati u preispitivanju ove pretpostavke i doprinijeti daljem unapređivanju misli i aktivnosti prema svjetskoj budućnosti neubijanja.

Ringkasan: Buku ini ditawarkan bagi pertimbangan dan refleksi kritis, terutama untuk pelajar ilmu politik di seluruh dunia, mulai dari siswa pemula sampai dengan profesor emeritus.

Diharapkan para pembaca akan ikut mempertanyakan asumsi ini dan akan menyumbangkan batu loncatan lebih lanjut dalam bentuk pemikiran dan aksi menuju masa depan global yang bebas pembunuhan.

The Frontiers of Nonviolence

The Frontiers of Nonviolence

Edited by Chaiwat Satha-Anand and Michael True
ISBN 97489030-0-1 (1998) [Co-published with IPRA and the Peace Information Center]

Summary: The papers in this book give us a much-needed look at current theoretical understandings of nonviolence and its intellectual and spiritual roots, at the dynamics of its current practise in a number of different settings, and its potentials for more widespread social change toward peace and justice in a future social order. It is with a special sense of poignancy that I write these words, realizing that Kenneth Boulding's article which opens the book is the last article he wrote before he died. His life was a testament to the thinking, study and practise of peace, and he knew that nonviolence was the only path to that future state of humankind (by Elise Boulding).

Summary: The year 1998 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Gandhi's martyrdom. During the fifty years that separate us from Gandhi, humanity has witnessed these far reaching and bewildering changes. It is in this context the question is asked: Where does Gandhi stand and what is the relevance of his life and message? Contributed by internationally reputed academics, research scholars, statesmen, sociologists and peace activists, the present volume is an attempt to assess and evaluate Gandhi's contribution to the progress of mankind in various ways and to show how universal and pervasive his influence is across the world.

To Nonviolent Political Science: From Seasons of Violence

To Nonviolent Political Science: From Seasons of Violence

by Glenn D. Paige
ISBN 1-880309-07-6 (1993)

Summary: This book has its origins in a 1985 request by Mr. Toru Kinoshita of Hiroshima University and Dr. Chung-si Ahn of Seoul National University that I bring together some dispersed writings on my journey to nonviolence to assist thoughtful consideration by young scholars in political science. Thus this belated response. It is stimulated also by a life-threatening disruption of heart rhythms in late 1990 that led to quintuple bypass open heart surgery and to acute awareness that for me time is running out. It was distressing to think that an important task might be left undone.

Islam and Nonviolence

Islam and Nonviolence

Edited by Glenn D. Paige, Chaiwat Satha-Anand and Sarah Gilliatt
ISBN 1-880309-0608 (1993)

Summary: A seminar on Islam and Nonviolence, to many, sounds unimaginable in a world where the term “Islam” has ceased to be a simple description. Instead, it means a lot of “unpleasant” things to some non-Muslims. Edward Said, a Columbia University professor, writes, “For the right, Islam represents barbarism; for the left, medieval theocracy; for the center, a kind of distasteful exoticism. In all camps, however, there is agreement that even though little enough is known about the Islamic world there is not much to be approved of there.” Needless to say, concerning the issue of nonviolence, Islam is normally perceived as heavily oriented towards the former. The Center for Global Nonviolence Planning Project is pleased to present this report of an international exploratory seminar on Islam and nonviolence held in Bali, Indonesia, during February 14-19, 1986.

Summary: Though Petra Karin Kelly, nonviolence speaks to power. This selection of five speeches and four essays covering the period from August 1987 to July 1991 provides insights into the nature and scope of her concerns. learned as a cofounder of the German Green Party (1979), as a candidate heading the Green list in four national elections (1979, 1980, 1982, and 1987), and as a twoterm member of the parliamentary Green Bundestag (1983-90). The Center for Global Nonviolence Planning Project is pleased to present this book, which will be of worldwide interest to all who study and practice nonviolence. This includes peace workers, ecologists, feminists, human rights advocates, workers for economic justice, health workers, and all who engage in and support direct nonviolent political action. We think that nonviolent political leaders now and in the twenty-first century can benefit much from her vision, analysis, and experience. The seeds of a practical nonviolent global political theory are undeniably present here.

Nonviolence in Hawaii's Spiritual Traditions

Edited by Glenn D. Paige and Sarah Gilliatt

Summary: These essays were first presented as brief talks given in Kuykendall Auditorium on the campus of the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa on January 11, 1990. They were offered as contributions of the Center for Global Nonviolence Planning Project to celebrate the Hawai‘i State Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday n cooperation with the King Holiday Commission chaired by Dr. Donnis Thompson. We are privileged to be able to present these insights into nonviolence in Hawai‘i’s spiritual traditions and are deeply grateful to the authors for sharing them. We recognize, as does each of them, that interpretations can vary within each tradition. Therefore none of them claims to speak for all adherents of their faith. Each voice is an authentic one and merits most thoughtful reception.
