Reviews


"Peter Brock's fine documentary history is a welcome addition to the scant literature on the history of conscientious objection.Brock's work makes it clear that those who refute the state in the name of transcendent values, today and in the future, are heirs to a rich historical legacy."-- Journal of the American Academy of Religion
