Although conscientious objection is a long-standing phenomenon, it has only recently become a major factor affecting armed forces and society. The only comprehensive, comparative scholarly study of conscientious objection to military service, this book examines the history of the practice in the Western world and state policies that have grown up in response to it. It shows how the contemporary refusal to bear arms is likely to be secular and widespread rather than religious and marginal, now including service people (as seen in the 1991 War in the Persian Gulf) as well as conscription resisters. No account of civil-military relations or peace movements in advanced industrial countries is complete without reference to conscientious objection, and this book will be the standard text on the subject.

Review:

It combines scrupulous scholarly detail with a degree of sophistication in analysis and general conceptualization not equaled elsewhere in the literature....The editors have compiled a highly useful reference source for scholars and activists, and on that basis alone have produced a work worthy of inclusion in any private or institutional library....The book's quality and usefulness are beyond question. (Peace & Change)

Synopsis:

This study examines the changing motives and patterns of conscientious objection as well as state policies toward objectors in the Western world.
