From the Editor
- There are over 200 Peace and Conflict Studies programs in U.S. and Canadian universities. At Waterloo, Conrad Grebel College's program is now coordinated by Ron Mathies. The University ofToronto offers a four-year degree at University College (largely taught by Anatol Rapoport) and a three-year major program at Erindale College (coordinated by Metta Spencer). Mc Master University has a Peace Studies Centre, a lively committee that organizes lectures, and a popular course on peace, taught now by Henry Wiseman. York University is preparing a course on global education. A certificate program at a Montreal CEGEP, John Abbott College, is run by Alan Silverman.
- For this special issue on post-secondary peace studies, we are joined by three thoughtful co-editors, MeMaster University professors Paul Dekar, Joanna Santa Barbara, and Graeme MacQueen. See their introduction on page 12 to their chosen theme, Thought and Action in Peace Studies.
- The GST and large increases in postal rates are coming soon. Like most other Canadian magazines, we must raise our subscription rates in 1991. Subscribe now at the current low rate. There is also time to order Christmas gifts for your friends in Canada at $15 per year or $26 for two. Upcoming themes in 1991: report card on the state ofpeace in the world; native issues in Canada; peace and the environment; peace and the economy; nationalism and sovereignty; peace and social change movements.
- You haven't received an index lately, have you? We'll fix that next time. Our entire December issue will be a comprehensive index of all the PEACE Magazines since it began in 1985. If you've kept back issues, you'll now be able to find important articles quickly. The following month, we will start a more rational timetable: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
