This study analyzes, mainly through case studies, the nature, aims and impact of peace movements during the inter-war period (in Britain, France, and Germany), during World War II (in Britain, Holland, and Norway), and since 1945 (British peace movement and Falklands War, American Anti-Vietnam War movement, and an evaluation of the official peace movement in the GDR). These case studies are preceded by essays which address general questions concerning the nature of, and reasons for, the failure of peace movements; their achievements; and their social dynamics. The authors are historians and scholars of the peace movement and some have been actively involved in it. Their critical analysis of the past experience is an important contribution to future peace-making efforts.
