The anthropologists who have written for this installment of “Peace by Other Means” are not advocating that specific mechanisms of conflict prevention or resolution be lifted from other cultures for application out of their emic contexts. Rather, the point of examining indigenous cases is, first, to seek theoretical principles of enmity prevention and reduction that may emerge from a comparative perspective and, second, to look outside the very closed and square box of the Western political and diplomatic traditions for perspectives on enmity and peacemaking that may disabuse us of our own failing preconceptions.
