Replaces communal altruism with communal egoism as a way of solving problems of too much violence and too little peace in the twenty-first century.

Book News
Explores the views of a number of utopian thinkers in their effort to base peace upon a philosophy of communal altruism. Arguing that communal altruism reveals itself in the discussion as "logically opaque and empirically and practically incoherent," the authors attempt to replace to with a reformulation labeled communal egoism. They contend that all of the thinkers examined would accept their reformulation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
