War and Peace in Judaism, Christianity and Islam: The Influence of Texts and Commentaries Throughout History

A series of workshops for fifteen school teachers (6th through 12th grade) in San Diego school districts on the complex role that religion has played in shaping the causes and conduct of war, as well as in laying the foundations for peace.
