It is a disturbing book.
Eva F. Kosinski
This book can only help but bring us closer to answering the title's question, an answer that simply must be - to preserve humanity.

Compilation of many knowledgable people's real life experiences, this book is well written and enjoyable to read. A college professor of political science or history would find this a valuable adjunct to their lectures.

This is a great anthology of essays by some of the most thoughtful lovers of peace, liberty and humanity in recent times. You don't have to be a pacifist to appreciate its many insights but if you've got a hair trigger temperament, this is your antidote. -- Lawrence W. Reed, President, Foundation for Economic Education.

Format: Paperback
Powerful and chilling; thanks so much, Marc, for giving us such an important book. Why Peace offers a compilation of essays by those who've experienced and witnessed the violence of war and the suffering of oppression firsthand, whether as journalists, prisoners, activists, human rights workers, soldiers. From Sarajevo to the Sudan, from Iraq to North Korea, and Guantanamo to Vietnam, come stories so extraordinary that I often found them hard to read, but I couldn't put it down. I know I'll never forget the tiny children who died of fear, clinging to one another as bombs fell around their home.

But there is also an overlying hope in Why Peace, a hope that is borne in the compassion and hearts of those working for justice, and those simply living (surviving) in horrendous situations but retaining their humanity, continuing to reach beyond their own suffering to help others. Why Peace offers a glimpse into the policies and practices that foster violence and shape our acceptance of what, with a true awareness, we could only condemn. A timely book, as we once again hear the distant drumming of the warmongers. This book can only help but bring us closer to answering the title's question, an answer that simply must be - to preserve humanity.

Thank you, Marc, for this book and for all you do to bringing us closer to Peace.

This is a wonderful book! Order one for you, and 4 or 5 as gifts. This collection of articles about peace reads easily, one article at a time. It helps to paint a picture of what a world at peace can be like.
