This inspiring collection introduces 20 remarkable people from around the world “who have made peace their choice in life.” Their photographs and pithy biographical sketches are arranged under five paths to peace: choosing nonviolence, living peace, honoring diversity, valuing all life and caring for the planet. Giants such as Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa appear along with the less known: Brazilian AfroReggae musician Anderson Sá, Washington peace educator Colman McCarthy and Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. This accessible volume will mobilize activists of all ages, with messages in each peacemaker’s own words. Study guides for groups and classes are available online.
