Gaza: Time to take sides

The news out of Gaza has been horrendous, overwhelming, tragic, heart-breaking. Death upon death. Destruction after destruction. Loss of life; losses for families, communities, the human race. It is easy to feel rage and horror, depression and defeat. Will the violence ever end?Although the outlook for peace and reconciliation may seem at a discouraging low, there are also some hope-inspiring stories that should not be ignored and buried in these deadly times:In Gaza, Greek Orthodox Christians…See More

Do you hear what I hear?

 Every way I turn my head, I hear echoes from 9/11.What I hear:Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump. The excited heart of George W. Bush as he envisioned finishing what his father had started and planting Uncle Sam’s big boot on Iraqi oil fields.No! No! No! The screams of babies, children, mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles as they’re being pierced, shattered, and  torn apart by guns, mortars, bombs, and collapsing buildings, courtesy of the U.S. military.Thud, thud,…See More

Globalization for good

Liberal economists—the ones ballyhooing about the benefits of unfettered capitalism–have gleefully co-opted the term “globalization.” [See Forbes article]. It is this form of globalization–the one of which the multinational corporations and financial institutions are so proud–that has kept multitudes of people in…See More

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Many years ago, I was a history major at Swarthmore College, where I developed my interests in history, politics, psychology, teaching, service, and peace. Following graduation, I became a Special Education teacher, and received an Ed.D. in Special Education. I am currently a Professor of Psychology at Boston University and Director of the Group on International Perspectives on Governmental Aggression and Peace (GIPGAP). Since 1980, when I was a postdoctoral fellow on the family violence team at Children’s Hospital in Boston, I have conducted extensive research on family violence as well as on perspectives on war and peace. I regularly teach undergraduate and graduate courses focusing on the family and on family violence, as well as a summer course on the Psychology of War and Peace. I am the first author of several books, including Treating Child Abuse and Family Violence in Hospitals, and Family Violence in a Cultural Perspective with Denise Hines. I am the editor of the book International Perspectives on Family Violence and Abuse: A Cognitive Ecological Approach, co-author, with Denise Hines. My current focus is primarily on cross-cultural and international perspectives on governmental aggression and peace. I have edited a four-volume series of books for Praeger Security International on State Violence and the Right to Peace: An International Survey of the Views of Ordinary People. I have recently completed two volumes for Springer that are due to be published this year: International Handbook on War, Torture, and Terrorism, and International Handbook on Peace and Reconciliation.

Hello Kathleen.  I am a retired educator of thirty years service and I am doing some writing as a way of re-examining, and recovering from, those years in the classroom.  I remember the day the twin towers went down.  I was serving as assistant principal at Martin Junior High in the Barrio of East Austin, Texas.  The following day I met one of my history teacher's in the hallway and I asked her specifically how she was using that horrific event to help kids understand what was going on.  She looked at me and said, "I don't have time to lecture on the twin towers... I'm covering the civil war."  I was floored. It took me back to 1968 during the Viet Nam war.  My father had already served two tours in the jungles near An Khe. I was a high school senior at that time, the draft was on, and I was headed to Viet Nam as soon as I graduated.  There were many, many events taking place at that time, although my teachers never allowed us to make any connection between what was inside the textbook and what was actually taking place in the real world, the very scary world I was about to enter. 

Could you please give me your take on the state of history teaching in respect to account I just gave you?  I would very much appreciate your input.

Thank you.  Steve Poynter

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutumbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our Indian culture and tradition.
We created countries, boundaries,religions.But this is the time to realize that we are one, our source of life and breath is same , we naturally interconnected with each other.When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable.God has given us a human life to look after the wellbeing of all living life in this planet.
