By Lisa Nolan on March 1, 2003
Format: Paperback
"A collection of speeches revealing [Maria Montessori's] conviction for peace to be obtained by means of education. Her starting point is her conviction that the child must be our teacher, moving on to consider the problems of human development. "--Nienhuis Books & Publications
A must read book for Montessori teachers and parents! And although no longer in print, try a used copy or go to your local library!
Maria Montessori believed that world peace could be attained if we teach peace to our students and children; in that we all have the same fundamental needs (food, shelter, clothing...) but that we as people obtain them differently according to our environments, not the color of our skin.
Montessori education teaches peace as tolerance, tolerance of other races, religions, and cultures. A must in this time of looming war!

Format: Paperback
Dr. Maria Montessori lays out a vision of education as the path to peace. She says, "Preventing war is the work of politics, peace is the work of education."

Her words mean more every time I read them.

The book is very important for peace education. I read it at the UK library. But I did not get this book yet. The very bad time loss for me. I hope to translate this book for my students, but still I cannot get it up to today. Please check it.
