The road to peace requires more than UN resolutions and toppling dictators and military might. It requires the development of institutions that will help move the world toward peace and to sustain it once war is abolished. Service Without Guns, by Donald J. Eberly and Reuven Gal with a guest chapter by Michael Sherraden, points the way to one such developing institution, generally referred to as National Youth Service (NYS). Service Without Guns examines the linkages between military service and NYS in the 20th Century, describes their common characteristics, notes the similarities in impact on those who serve, goes into some detail on the essential elements of NYS programs, and concludes that NYS can and should become at least as big and important in the 21st Century as military service was in the 20th.

    "Service Without Guns" From Professor Charles Moskos, Military Sociologist: "By drawing parallels between military and civilian service, this book abounds in fresh insights. The great strength of Don Eberly and Reuven Gal is placing youth service-- whether international, national, or local -- in a cross-national perspective. SERVICE WITHOUT GUNS shows how service by young people can, to name a few, reduce tensions between hostile cultures, meet the needs of the aged and the handicapped, reduce crime, improve education, and better the natural environment."
