Abstract: 'This volume is a commentary on war and peace from the perspective of depth psychology. The unique contribution of depth psychology is its use of symbolic and mythic analysis to assess behaviors that are influenced by the unconscious component of the human psyche. The chapters discuss certain archetypes that impact on war and peace....If the volume has a singular message it is that humans not call upon the Death Force (war) to solve Life Force issues.'
