  • American Tolkien Society

  • 35 pp.

"Middle-earth is a world of breath-taking beauty and majesty, created by the late J.R.R. Tolkien. But Middle-earth is also a world sharply divided between the forces of Good and Evil. The history of Middle- earth is marked by wars of apocalyptic proportions. The studies collected here examine the scope and nature of these conflicts, and of the opposing drive for peace which permeates Middle-earth. The questions of war and peace, and alternative means of conflict are examined in light of Tolkien’s religious faith and upbringing, the politics and wars of the primary world in his era, and the impact of his writings on contemporary society and its outlook on peace and conflict." (from an American Tolkien Society catalog)
