"SéverineAutesserre combines a scholar's rigor and an activist passion. With authority gained from hard experience, she shows how true peace must be built from the ground up and the inside out. A world in flames should heed her message."

—Gideon Rose, Editor, Foreign Affairs

It's always the same story told in a different setting. Violence breaks out, foreign nations are scandalized, interveners and million-dollar donors come rushing in, warring parties sign a peace agreement, but within months the situation is back to where it started or worse off. An award-winning researcher and peacebuilder, Séverine Autesserre, examines the well-intentioned but inherently flawed peace industry in her new book, THE FRONTLINES OF PEACE. With examples drawn from across the globe, she reveals that peace can grow in the most unlikely circumstances.

Contrary to what most politicians preach, building peace doesn't require billions in aid or massive international interventions. Real, lasting peace requires giving power to local citizens. THE FRONTLINES OF PEACE tells the stories of the ordinary yet extraordinary individuals and organizations that are confronting violence in their communities effectively.

One thing is clear: successful examples of peace-building around the world, in countries at war or at peace, have involved innovative grassroots initiatives led by local people, at times supported by foreigners, often employing methods shunned by the international elite. By narrating success stories of this kind, Autesserre shows the radical changes we must take in our approach if we hope to build lasting peace around us--whether we live in Congo, the United States, or elsewhere.
