The idea of establishing a National Peace Academy has had dedicated and zealous supporters for decades. The creation by Congress of the United States Institute of Peace in 1984 brought this idea to partial fruition, although not exactly to the overwhelming attention of the public. The present volume celebrates the passage of the legislation, suggests programs for the institute to undertake, and brings together essays on the "just war" tradition, peacekeeping as a military mission, and the connections between social justice and migration.
