The new abolitionists. I think that’s who we are looking at in the American freeze movement, not to mention the peace movements in Western Europe. With self-conscious pride, the freeze activists compare themselves to an earlier era of churchgoing, middle-class Americans who dedicated themselves in the 19th century to the abolition of another evil institution, slavery.

This book is the first major study of one of the most significant peace-making efforts of our day.

Gordon Bennett explores the origins of the movement in Europe and the United States, examines its religious and philosophical basis, and provides practical suggestions on how to become involved.
