 Educating for peace is best done in a cooperative and collaborative mode. To that end, this bibliography and resource guide owes many thanks to Åke Bjerstedt, of the School of Education in Malmö, Sweden, who graciously gave his permission for us to use his Educating Towards a Culture of Peace: A Select Bibliography Focusing on the Last 25 Years. Many of the following entries may be found in his book which can be ordered through the School of Education, SE-205 o6 Malmö, Sweden; firstname.lastname@example.org. His very complete bibliography has an international focus. In addition, we are grateful to Aline Stomfay-Stitz, editor of the Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association newsletter, who shared her resource list with us (www.unf.edu/~astomfay/) and to the Curriculum of Hope project of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. The authors are grateful the National Catholic Reporter (April 26, 2002), “Paths to Peace,” that had an extensive list of resources. We would also like to thank Mike Abkin of the National Peace Academy for his contributions toward the resources focused on a culture of peace. The authors have not personally reviewed all of these sources.
 This bibliography does not contain references to peace education efforts in regions of intractable sustained conflict like the Middle East, the Balkans, Northern Ireland, the Great Lakes Area in Africa, the Philippines, and Central America. There are other aspects of peace education—education about gender violence, domestic violence, multicultural education, international education (also known as global studies), race relations, and human rights education -- not included in this bibliography. This is a selected bibliography of books pertaining to peace education and not an exhaustive bibliography on the topic.
 A reference in this format without further text refers to the name of a journal.
