Topic: Why Peace Is Possible: Exploring the Anatomy of Violence and War
Paul K. Chappell, the Peace Leadership Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, grew up in Alabama as the son of a Korean mother and a half-black and half-white father who had fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars. Paul graduated from West Point in 2002, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty in November, 2009 with the rank of Captain. He has subsequently devoted his efforts to waging peace and ending war. He has already published four books in his projected seven-book series titled Road to Peace: Will War Ever End? A Soldier’s Vision of Peace for the 21st Century (2009), The End of War: How Waging Peace Can Save Humanity, Our Planet, and Our Future (2010), Peaceful Revolution: How We Can Create the Future Needed for Humanity’s Survival (2012), and The Art of Waging Peace: A Strategic Approach to Improving Our Lives and the World (2013). He lectures across the country and internationally and regularly offers college courses and workshops on Peace Leadership.
Of his second book, Archbishop Desmond Tutu said: “Paul K. Chappell has given us a crucial look at war and peace from the unique perspective of a soldier, and his new ideas show us why world peace is both necessary and possible in the 21st century. The End of War can help people everywhere understand why war must end, and how together we can end it.” Captain Chappell lives in Santa Barbara, California, and his website is www.peacefulrevolution.com.
