"Judith Hand marshals knowledge and insight from biological, cultural, and political sciences to argue persuasively that now is the time in human development to extinguish the fires of war. She demonstrates that such a mammoth shift of human spirit and politics is possible, in fact crucial to human survival…she invites us to take part in this historical psychological, social, and institutional shift toward resolving differences through law with justice instead of bullets and bombs."
