Violence, war and militarism continue to play an important role in the organization of modern society. A key factor in the creation, perpetuation and significance of violence is the way it is linked with the military-industrial-academic complex and the way those links perpetuate a war culture. In this paper we argue for a wider academic effort to address the inter-relationships between war and violence, one that addresses and develops a pro-peace agenda for Geography. We focus on the need to be pro-justice and on the need to build wider disciplinary coalitions that confront a predominant war culture in 21 st Century U.S. society.
