Peace & Change: Special Issue on the U.S. War in Iraq, Call for Reviewers / Call for Articles

Peace & Change, the scholarly journal of the Peace History Society and the Peace & Justice Studies Association, is compiling a special issue for mid-2009 which will consist largely of reviews of books and films on the Iraq War and related issues, as well as of some articles. We invite interested scholars and activists to volunteer to review selected books or films, and to submit articles, or proposals for articles.

Please contact Robert Shaffer of Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, at roshaf@ship.edu, to receive a list of the books and films we would like to review for this issue.

Reviews should emphasize the importance of the book in evaluating U.S. policies in Iraq or related issues, and the usefulness of the book to students, the general public, the antiwar movement, and the critical scholarly community. Reviews for this special issue of Peace & Change have a 1500-word limit, or 2500 words for a joint review. The due date for reviews to be submitted will be January 1, 2009.

To submit an article on the topic -- historical perspectives, analyses of U.S. policy, analyses of the anti-war movement, or related issues -- please also contact Robert Shaffer, with a 250-word proposal, and a brief c.v. Articles will be subject to peer review, and will be due December 1, 2008.

We hope this special issue of Peace & Change will be an important resource for historians, other peace and antiwar scholars, and antiwar activists in general.
