Patrick Novotny



The Post-Cold War Era, the Persian Gulf War, and the Peace and Justice Movement in the 1990s

Novotny analyzes the changing context of peace and militarism issues in the United States: With the end of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union in the late 1980s, the peace and justice movement is a part of the redefinition of peace activism around a much more diverse identity as a movement for peace and justice both at home and abroad. Novotny emphasizes sustainable development as a crucial component of the environmental justice and peace and justice movements.
