Winning the War on War: the Decline of Armed Conflict Worldwide
Today on Thinking Aloud, guest Joshua Goldstein discusses an encouraging though little known fact about the modern world: that we are now experiencing a surprising outbreak of peace around the globe.  Though news headlines may lead you to believe that warfare is increasing, the reality is that the number of wars, the number of soldiers killed in wars, and even the number of civilian deaths due to wars are all way down over the last few decades.  Goldstein will explain some of the reasons for this recent diminishing of war and argue that we have good reason to expect it to continue into the future.—Original airdate: 8/15/2013
