    Our perception of the past is dominated by a narrative of war and conflict, but most people have always sought to live in the peace which fosters human progress and productivity. In this book, the Guardian's former East Asia editor explores the powerful arguments made for peace by thinkers throughout human history, from ancient Greece and China to the Cold War and the many predicaments we face in the modern world.
