From the Paper:

"Philosophers and religious leaders of all times tried to propagate their beliefs involving the central role peace plays for humanity. They were joined in their efforts by political and business leaders in modern times. The history of mankind is though populated by wars making the ideal of global peace something that is still left for the future. Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire are among the first to acknowledge the importance of peace, in a primitive form or another. Some Greek city states from antiquity recognized the priority of not going to war against each other over the gains from taking the power over another neighbor state; the pax Romana that lasted over two centuries gave the Roman Empire the best means of taking advantage of the opportunities to conquer new vast territories and to gain hegemony. These were the incipient phases of acknowledging the role peace plaid in the internal interests of a state."
