Glenn Paige's book, "Nonkilling Global Political Science" is one of the most thought-provoking works I have read in recent years. It makes a strong argument for an urgently needed paradigm-shift in political science.

Glenn Paige's book, "Nonkilling Global Political Science" is one of the most thought-provoking works I have read in recent years. Paige shows that both violence-accepting politics and political science in the twentieth century have failed to supress violence by violent means. He lays out a new theoretical and methodlogical framework which is both humanist and practical. Brilliantly reasoned, the book charts out a wide range of actions in global problem-solving and institution building through.

Nonkilling Global Political Science is a 2002 book written by political scientist Glenn D. Paige. In his book, Paige challenges the violence-accepting assumptions of the discipline of political science as a whole. Paige introduces the concept of Nonkilling, which refers to the absence of killing, threats to kill, and conditions conducive to killing in human society.

Nonkilling Global Political Science is a 2002 book written by political scientist Glenn D. Center for Global Nonkilling.

This may be the first book in the English language to have the word "nonkilling" in its title. It invites all who study political science throughout the world and other concerned readers to consider seriously the question, "Is a nonkilling society possible?" The book proceeds to offer grounds for taking such a possibility seriously, and explores the implications of such an assumption for political science, for global problem-solving, and for needed new transitional institutions.

Prof Paige as a Korea War veteran had killed but in repentance has taken it upon himself to campaign for nonkilling, hoping that his soft voice of experience would speak louder than the thundering voice of arrogance...
...the book could have gained a wider appeal if it was titled Nonkilling Global Politics instead of Nonkilling Global Political Science because while many are interested in politics, few see political science as a field that is struggling to survive in the face of the litany of "unthinkables" in human socio-political and economic organisation. But Paige was writing mainly for political scientists and other social scientists, a number of whom are in dire need of liberation from the bondage of those unthinkables.
...It is certainly not a "fast food" book written to give the author a sense of belonging in the publish or perish world but one meticulously crafted to challenge humanity, not just political scientists in ivory towers, to turn the captivity of human lethality. Little wonder it has received favourable comments from Nobel laureates, leading peace activists and notable academics. The cover is beautiful, with a "Take up and read" appeal.

Glenn Paige's book, "Nonkilling Global Political Science" is one of the most thought-provoking works I have read in recent years. It makes a strong argument for an urgently needed paradigm-shift in political science. Paige shows that both violence-accepting politics and political science in the
twentieth century have failed to supress violence by violent means. He lays out a new theoretical and methodlogical framework which is both humanist and practical. Brilliantly reasoned, the book charts out a wide range of actions in global problem-solving and institution building through the
power of non violence. A profoundly original work and wonderful tonic. Strongly recommended.

Nonkilling Global Political Science offers a new dimension to the study of the discipline. Clear and comprehensive, the discussion is readily accessible to the general reader and resonant for the specialist in social science, as an indispensable reference for courses in political theory and strategic nonviolence.

In this exceptional book, lucid and well-written, Professor Paige brings to bear both his exceptional abilities as social and political scientist and his passionate concerns about violence in the human condition.
The net result is a powerful critique of political science as a discipline, and a detailed road-map for the pursuit of a seemingly impossible goal: a nonkilling world. Paige thinks that it is possible and makes a powerful case in support of that view.
