An award-winning new book, Great Peacemakers, tells the true life stories of twenty great peacemakers from around the world and addresses a wide range of social issues. The book is designed to offer positive role models and examples of nonviolent conflict resolution while enhancing study in a variety of content areas.
Great Peacemakers won the 2007 International PeaceWriting Award from the Peace and Justice Studies Association and the OMNI Center for Peace, Justice, and Ecology. The book is also endorsed by three heads of state and three Nobel Peace Prize recipients, including Dr. Oscar Arias, president of Costa Rica and Nobel Laureate, who said: “Powerful, well-researched and, above all, timely, Great Peacemakers should be required reading for the youth of the world.”
