About the book (from Goodreads):

Desiderus Erasmus was one of the greatest scholars of all time. He lived at the time of the Renaissance, in the late 15th to early 16th centuries, a period of profound change, and a time when every European nation managed to go to war with another European nation. “The Complaint of Peace” grew from his reaction to his warlike times. His desire for peace permeates his work. Now, 500 years later, Peace’s words still retain their relevance.
