Diamond has traveled the world on her quest to promote peace and end the violence that tears families, towns, and nations apart. Based on her life's work and that of other peace builders, Diamond has uncovered four spiritual principles that create the essential foundation for peace. A fascinating and thoughtful expose, The Courage for Peace deals with peace on every level and takes us from the room of a little boy who sleeps with a toy rifle to the unrest in the Balkans, and finally to the devastating increase of violence in our communities and what we must do about it now. With information on scores of peacemaking organizations, this book is truly a call to save the world, one action at a time. From schoolyards to war zones, the issue of peace has never been more crucial. We are bombarded daily with headlines and televised imagery reminding us that people all over the world are suffering in many different ways, not only in Kosovo and Kashmir.
