Here in one volume are most of Tolstoy's major writings on conscience and war. Stressing that the process of peace can only begin with the refusal of the individual to participate in state-organized killing, Tolstoy's writings are particularly relevant in an age when warfare is sanitized, packaged, and sold to a populace finding it increasingly difficult to respond in an ethically meaningful way.
