Merle Curti and the Significance of Peace Research in American History
This article investigates Curti's long and distinguished professional interest in peace history. Relying on Lawrence Wittner's research note, “Merle Curti and the Development of Peace History,” which appeared in the January 1998 issue of Peace & Change, the author expands the discussion with extensive use of Curti's unpublished correspondence. The author critically analyzes Curti's publications in the field in the 1930s, his support for World War II, and his encouragement to younger scholars to continue researching and publishing in peace history as a means of advancing human civilization.
