The year is 2010, the arms race has ended, and the world is at peace. How did it happen? That was the question posed by the Christian Science Monitor in a ""Peace 2010'' essay contest, and some 1300 people (from business, academia, etc.) submitted their own peace-making scenarios, 40 of which are printed in this unusual volume. Devoting a chapter to each of the essayists' solutions (peace through disaster; improved U.S.-Soviet relations; better peace-making machinery), the editors offer thoughtful analyses of the writers' diverse, often detailed and realistic entries. From the most frightening (a televised nuclear battle between India and Pakistan) to the quietest (citizen exchanges among nations), the possibilities of peace envisioned here form a stimulating book.
