Choosing Peace through Daily Practice is intended for people who feel both called to and daunted by the vocation of peacemaking. How do we live out this calling in a world that seeks peace through violence? How do we live out this calling in a society that understands peace as the absence of violence, rather than the presence of justice? How do we live out this calling in a time when the daily news reinforces the perception that peace is truly untenable? The contributors, all of whom teach at Claremont School of Theology, argue in their essays that we live out this calling by practicing peace in and through our daily devotions, work, and interaction with others. The first set of essays explores the vocation of peacemaking explains practices language, and highlights the connection between the processes of peace in the world and peace in the home. The remaining chapters describe practices of peacemaking in spiritual life, classroom discourse, congregational ministry, and community interaction.

"Masterful. . . . Logevall presents a vivid and tragic portrait of the elements of U.S. decision-making on Vietnam from the beginning of the Kennedy administration through the announcement of the American ground war in July 1965. In the process he reveals a troubling picture of top officials in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations persisting in efforts to boost the fortunes of sucessive governments of South Vietnam, even while they acknowledged that their chances for success were remote. In addition, he places the decision-making squarely in the international context."—Robert D. Schulzinger, author of A Time for War: The United States and Vietnam, 1941-1975 "Stunning in its research and highly sophisticated in its analysis, Choosing War is far and away the best study we have of Lyndon Johnson's escalation of the conflict in Vietnam."—George C. Herring "In this fine book, Fredrick Logevall offers the first detailed examination of why diplomacy failed to head off the Vietnam War. Grounding himself in documentary research and other sources from several countries, Logevall comes closer than anyone ever has to explaining what happened. His clear writing and deep analysis may well change our understanding of Vietnam as a quagmire."—John Prados, author of The Hidden History of the Vietnam War "A rising star among a new generation of historians, Fredrik Logevall has written the most important Vietnam book in years. By explaining the international context of that tragic conflict, Choosing War provides startling answers to the question, Why did the war happen? Controversial yet fair, this account challenges the reader to think through John F. Kennedy's and Lydon B. Johnson's individual responsibility for Vietnam. The effect is compelling, unforgettable history."—Timothy Naftali, co-author of "One Hell of a Gamble:" Khrushchev, Castro, and Kennedy, 1958-1964
