I have met Dr. Brock and have used his sources on a number of occasions.
Peter Brock has written about the Doukhobors in his books, such as Pacifism in Europe To 1914 (Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1972).
Also he was on the Editorial Board for the book The Long Way of Russian Pacifism: Ideal of International and Inner Peace in Russian Religio- philosophical and Socio-political Thought (Moscow: Institute of World History, 1997). Chaper 3, called "Conscientious objection in the Russian Empire", includes the following items by contributors who attended the international conference in Moscow in 1992:
