After the most violent century in human history, we are still a long way from changing the social habits and institutions – and the habits of mind – which promote violence. We seem to be so deeply attached to its representation that we can’t give it up. And, despite volumes of evidence to the contrary, we cling to our belief in its efficacy, whether it’s a clip over the ear or a laser-guided precision bomb.Saying no to violence casts a critical look at the way we teach children to accept violence as natural and inevitable. It suggests alternative strategies for bringing up children not only to act nonviolently but think nonviolently. Saying no to violence has a wealth of suggestions for parents and teachers of young children including curriculum-based lesson plans.

REVIEW: '..the question of violence is not likely to go away. Saying no to violence challenges the representation of conflict ... written for parents and teachers it provides background information and provocative ideas on subjects ranging from ethical investment to computerised war games.'
