Over two thousand years ago, Sun Tzu wrote The Art of War. In today’s struggle to stop war, terrorism, and other global problems, West Point graduate Paul K. Chappell offers new and practical solutions in his pioneering book, The Art of Waging Peace. By sharing his own personal struggles with childhood trauma, racism, and berserker rage, Chappell explores the anatomy of war and peace, giving strategies, tactics, and leadership principles to resolve inner and outer conflict. Chappell explains from a military perspective how Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. were strategic geniuses, more brilliant and innovative than any general in military history, courageous warriors who advanced a more effective method than waging war for providing national and global security. This pragmatic and richly instructive book shows how we can become active citizens with the skills and strength to defeat injustice and end all war.
Paul K. Chappell graduated from West Point in 2002, was deployed to Baghdad, and left active duty in November 2009 as a captain. The author of three other books, he serves as the peace leadership director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and lectures throughout the country and internationally. He grew up in Alabama, the son of a half-black and half-white father who fought in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and a Korean mother.
