The Frontlines of Peace

Severine Autesserre

Overview

What images does the word 'peacekeeping' bring to mind? Bulletproof vests, aid agencies, tanks, automatic weapons, gatherings of world leaders, and charitable telethons for faraway lands? Séverine Autesserre has a broader vision.

A French-American author and researcher, Autesserre has spent 20 years working in 12 different war zones. In that time she interviewed more than 800 peacebuilders, warlords, victims, politicians, and locals. With such significant experience under her belt, Autesserre uses The Frontlines of Peace to share what she has learned about establishing and maintaining peace.

With its blend of anecdotes from locations as varied as Mexico, Congo and South Side Chicago, The Frontlines of Peace will serve anybody in search of pathways to peace, no matter where they are in the world.
