Nonkilling Linguistics By Patricia Friedrich
Paperback: $15.00

Nonkilling speaks both to the goal of preserving the physical lives of individuals, communities, other species, the environment as well as the more metaphorical but also extremely important survival... More > of languages, cultures, histories (oral and written), literary manifestations, etc. The list is vast and varied, and the good news is that a nonkilling mentality can be applied to all these realms and lives. This volume helps us start exploring the potential of the nonkilling paradigm when it comes to language use, education and legislation. As many are aware, language permeates most facets of human experience: we use different forms of language and literacy to establish contact with one another, to communicate our thoughts and feelings, to make sense of the world around us, and ultimately to realize our destiny as social beings.< Less
Nonkilling Media By Joám Evans Pim

The importance of rethinking media and entertainment from a nonkilling perspective is self-explanatory. In "Nonkilling Global Political Science", Glenn Paige pointed out how violence is... More > "socially learned and culturally reinforced". This social effort is by no means casual or due to some innate taste or demand for violence content historically considered repugnantbut rather, "violent media socialization is useful for a state in need of professional patriotic killers". Nonkilling creativity throuought the ages also shows how a life-enhancing media is possible. At the Center for Global Nonkilling we sincerely hope that the contributions compiled in this volume may help shape an alternative to the lethal ideology that permates media that may enhance the value of life.< Less

Contributors to this volume on nonkilling futures where asked to envision as clearly as they can the crucial features of a nonkilling world. The resulting diversity of approaches are visions, not... More > blueprints or orders. And so, as we do move forward, learning more, needing more, incorporating more people with different ideas into our work, we will need to alter our visions even as we move toward them. That does not render the visioning process superfluous. To the contrary, without a clear vision, we cannot be sure about what our first moves should be since we are not specifically heading anywhere. As Yogi Berra might have said, “if you don’t know where you are going, chances are you’ll end up someplace else.”< Less

This volume arises from a crucial question formulated by political scientist Glenn D. Paige: “Is a Nonkilling Society Possible?” Paige (and much of the evidence brought for-ward in this... More > book) reminds us that nonkilling societies, characterized by no killing of humans and no threats to kill, do exist in spite of having passed largely unnoticed to most of the scientific community. Most authors who are contributing to this volume have been repeating the same crucial fact for decades: killing-free societies, as those imagined by Paige in his book, are not a utopian dream; they are a genuine actuality that has been in existence for millenia. It can probably be said louder but not more clearly. This volume provides firm evidence that the only feasible answer to Paige’s question is undoubtedly affirmative.< Less

This book is offered for consideration and critical reflection primarily by political science scholars throughout the world. Neither age nor erudition seems to make much difference in the prevailing... More > assumption that killing is an inescapable part of the human condition that must be accepted in political theory and practice. It is hoped that readers will join in questioning this assumption and will contribute further stepping stones of thought and action toward a nonkilling global future. This may be the first book in English to contain the word “nonkilling” in its title. The term is not in customary use. It seeks to direct attention beyond “peace” and even “nonviolence” to focus sharply upon the taking of human life. The initial response of many may be that to focus upon nonkilling is too negative, too narrow, and neglects more important things. They may find company in Gandhi’s admonition that to define ahimsa (nonviolence) as nonkilling offers little improvement over violence.< Less
