An East meets West dialogue that is indexed, a rare feature for such books and extremely helpful to biographers of both famous men.
Disappointingly, the parameters of discussion in "Lifelong Quest for Peace" are so limited that the indubitable reasons behind global conflicts since World War II are hardly touched upon at all. The reasons being that the whenever the Third World has attempted to break out of its service role (the provision of resources, cheap labour, markets, opportunities for investment and the export of pollution) it has been forcibly put back "into its place" by those countries shouldered with the responsibility of protecting the First World's interests. This truism, which is obstensibly evaded in "Lifelong Quest for Peace" is most adeptly covered in Noam Chomsky's "World Orders, Old and New."
The evasion of the above historical and systemic truism, along with Mr. Ikeda's emasculate contribution, are some of the reasons why, for this reader at least, "Lifelong Quest for Peace" is ineffectual in proffering substantial solutions to the problems it attempts to provide answers to.
