People come together in movements to end war from many political traditions. They are socialists, communists and anarchists, people of a variety of faiths, secularists, pacifists and feminists. They share a belief that peace is possible, but have divergent views on the causes of militarism and strategies to end it. The author looks at the tensions and divergences in and between anti-war, anti-militarist and peace organizations, and their potential for cohering into a powerful worldwide counter-hegemonic movement for violence reduction.
