In her published dissertation, Toward a Theory of Peace, Randall Caroline Watson Forsberg—a former military analyst, peace activist, and founder of the Nuclear Freeze Campaign and Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies—posits that peace is achievable. Through her multidisciplinary research and analysis, she seeks to understand changing moral beliefs and promote evidence-based advocacy. Matthew Evangelista, Cornell professor of government and former Forsberg student, edited this edition and wrote an introduction with Neta C. Crawford.
