Charles Webel

Charles Webel has taught social science and philosophy at UC Berkeley, Saybrook Graduate School, and Harvard University. He is series editor of Twenty-First Century Perspectives on War, Peace, and Human Conflict and the author of Terror, Terrorism, and the Human Condition (Macmillan). His most recent book, written along with David P. Barash, is Peace and Conflict Studies (Sage) will be published in July.

"Charles Webel has provided a stunning analysis of terror in terms of its psychological, social, and political impact. He also has important ideas about how to confront it. This is a major work that forces us to deal with our fears and the politicians who prey upon them." - Stephen Eric Bronner, Rutgers University
