Review

Top 10 Bestselling paid book in: Conflict Resolution and Mediation;Violence and Society; and War and Peace Simply wringing your hands over the state of the world is not going to change anything. It's real action that changes the world, and this book gives the reader advice from people who wake up every day and do the hard work of building peace. Bravo! - Jody Williams, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate These stories and essays intimately and powerfully convey two fundamental truths. The first is that history changes only through the actions of people who decide it has to change... The second truth is that the human spirit is worth struggling for, day after day, year after year, no matter whether we are successful or not. In this work, which joins us at the heart, we will always find joy, even in the harshest of external circumstances. - Margaret J. Wheatley, author of many books including Perseverance, So Far From Home, and Leadership and the New Science. The literature on peacebuilding has expanded significantly in the past ten years. This book stands out because it reflects and charts the creativity, energy and relevance of the field for global peacemaking... it is an indispensable resource for educators, researchers and activist. - Tom Woodhouse, author of Contemporary Conflict Resolution Voices of Harmony and Dissent holds the heart of how social change happens--people who believe deeply, develop significant relationships, and have the courage to engage together. Each and every chapter provides lessons and inspiration and, most importantly, has a deep resonance that rises from these voices of hard-won experience and reflective practice, an authenticity that touches the reader and points us toward the kind of learning that really makes a difference in our world. - John Paul Lederach, author of The Moral Imagination This book is an empowering patchwork of rich voices of harmony and dissent... It is a book you can dip into here and there on a plane or before bed. This is because it is a compilation that lets the journey be your own in connecting up the many strands of wisdom it contains. All of us can be much better peacebuilders if we take that journey of the connections with this sumptuous volume. - John Braithwaite, author of Crime, Shame and Reintegration

This volume teaches again and again one vital insight: peacebuilding in deeply divided communities requires a special combination of radical thinking, creative imagination and engaged action.  Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

Have you ever met people who faced deeply into the difficulties of life but still have a sense of joy, compassion, even playfulness?

Each bestselling author shares with you wisdom, inspiring stories and real life experiences. Each of the 15 bold peacebuilders in this book are just such people and each offers their best ideas to help you. These people exude a kind of hope rooted, not in ignorance, but rather the kind of hope that arises as people face the complexity of violence, trauma, abuse and injustice but still somehow find a path toward being peace and transforming the world. . Each shares their first-hand experience of learning the art of conflict, how to be peace in the midst of disruption and how they work at transforming the world.

These great teachers of peace teach you how to:
  • Be inspired by the stories of people being peace and transforming the world. .
  • Be equipped with tools and strategies of peacebuilding in a variety of settings
  • Be nurtured with resources that have helped shape and inspire the author's peace practices.
