Cover story: Unmaking war 1914 - 2014

In the run-up to the centenary of the first world war, we look at those who oppose and act against state violence. Adam Hochschild writes about the thousands of Britons who struggled against the war and refused to fight, Satish Kumar considers whether nonviolence can go beyond being a tactic and instead act as a philosophy for transformation, and Cynthia Cockburn considers how women worlwide bring feminism to the fight against militarism.
