Tecnical foreword to the bibliography Peace in Print
First of all I must say, that the title of this bibliography, peace in print does not have the same meaning as the Book's in print in the English speaking world. This is a bibliography of "Books out of Print", not a list of books for sale, though some of the books of course still can be obtained from booksellers or antiquarian book sellers. The title of this volume is merely a play with words.
This rather short bibliography of the history of the peace movements is thought to be a tool and a help for those interested in the subject for whatever reasons: university teachers and students, librarians, journalist and individuals in the peace movement. Here is an international bibliography so that the reader can learn what has been written about the history of the peace movement in different countries.
The bibliography chiefly covers books in English, German, French, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. Regarding the registration of Danish and Norwegian books on the history of the peace movement the registration is thought to be complete.
For those who are unable to read some of the rather exotic languages I have made a short note on what most of the books are about. Many of these are research books from different university specialties and include an English or German summary making them accessible to those persons without knowledge of the language in question. Books written by famous authors found in one language, might be translated to other languages, or they might be reprinted, as well as the books published by big (international) cooperations are to be found in more than one language and edition. Famous authors have often their writings published in "collected works", which is another important source of information.
Note also that many of the books here mentioned list bibliographies, reading lists and subject indexes so that the student of the history of the peace movement can pursue the subject still further. And further note that many of the peace groups publish rules of regulations, directories of members, annual reports, proceedings and minutes from meetings and conferences, which can possible be borrowed from their main office's archive or from libraries. Many of the conferences of the peace movements are recorded and printed and are thus an important source to the political discussions in the peace movements.
I have not made any political, scientific, religious or moral judgment about the books listed here. The criterion for including a book in this bibliography is merely that they are published and that I have learned about it. The student of the history of the peace movement must make his or her own judgment about the quality and usage of a publication.
The subject of reference bibliographies is often broader than just the peace movement and their history. The reference bibliographies also present writings on international policy in general and books of or about the peace movement and their activities, development and ideas. However only few important courses on the develop ment of the idea of peace and international relations are included in this bibliography. Basic those, who are important to get an overall view of the development.
When there are more than one author/editor or when the title are thought to be most significant, the title becomes the main reference for that entry. The Subject Index and the Subject Headings may help the reader to find the books he or she is looking for.
The registration of the books was completed in 19931. Attempts have been made to predominately use primarely registered books. When it in some cases unfortunately not have been possible, the results of on-line searches and the "Books in Print" for the different countries have been consulted as well as "The National Union Catalogue" (NUC) with books printed before (and after) 1956. However still some of the books recorded in this bibliography remain unverified.
Now after going though this bibliography the difficulty lies in getting hold of the books. However, if the local public library does not have the books, the research libraries, such as national or copyright libraries will have them, or they can through inter librarian loans obtain them.

as well as searchings on names of personalities and authors, known to be active in the peace movements. However, biographies about Alfred Nobel are not included in this bibliography. Interested should consult the Library of the Norwegian Nobel Institute.
The searches was concluded in the spring and summer of 1992.
Not included in this bibliography are foreign language books for instance Arabic, Hindi, Chinese and so on. Russian and East Euro pean language books are only included when they are primary registered or they are found in databases and then only if the key words indicate relevant subjects. It is not because of good will that the foreign language books are excluded and I hope that they some day can be added to the bibliography.
Neither included are novels and books on the League of Nations and the United Nations except they deal with the peace move ments.
Books written in foreign languages like russian and japanese are placed under their english or other language titles for practical reasons.
