49th State Brewing Company
Peace and global security are human endeavors, and thus their attainment depends as much on psychology as it does on governance and technology. Dr. Bill von Hippel provides evidence and argument that our evolved psychology is an obstacle to achieving international cooperation and peace. Nevertheless, these obstacles are not insurmountable and an awareness of them can help in the development of strategies to increase the chances of lasting peace and security.
Dr. Bill von Hippel grew up in Anchorage, got his B.A. at Yale and his PhD at the University of Michigan, and then taught for a dozen years at Ohio State University before finding his way to Australia, where he is a professor of psychology at the University of Queensland. He has published more than a hundred academic articles and chapters, and his research has been featured in The New York Times, USA Today,The Economist, the BBC, Le Monde, El Mundo, Der Spiegel, and The Australian.
