Three edited books of ethnographic case studies of nonviolent and peaceful cultures also have been published (Howell; Willis, 1989; Montagu, 1978; Sponsel; Gregor, 1994). Most recently, Fry (2006, 2007) has systematically and vigorously argued with ample evidence for the human potential and actuality of nonviolence and peace. Given this extensive documentation of nonkilling and peaceful sociocultural systems, the only way that any author, scholar, or scientist can possibly assert that human nature is inherently murderous and warlike is by ignoring the ample evidence to the contrary from a multitude of diverse sources.
The specializations available for listing in the AAA form include conflict, conflict resolution, ethnic conflict, violence, and warfare, but revealingly, neither nonviolence nor peace are listed.

Logically, human nature may or may not exist, it may be uniform or multifarious, it may good or bad, and so on. For example, some anthropologists would argue that there is no single, uniform human nature; instead, there are numerous human natures as expressed in the diversity of some 7,000 different cultures extant in the world today.
