Elise Boulding, leading peace activist, passes

Elise Boulding died June 24. She "was to peace studies what Rachel Carson was to conservation and Margaret Mead to anthropology," Colman McCarthy, NCR columnist, peace activist has written. "She gave academic legitimacy to the study of pacifism as both a moral force and a practical alternative to violence -- all the way from military violence to domestic violence."
