The visions of seventy-five of the world's greatest peacemakers — spiritual leaders, politicians, artists, and activists — testify to humanity's diversity and its potential. Featuring sixteen Nobel Peace Prize laureates and such visionaries as Nelson Mandela, Cesar Chavez, and Mother Teresa, the reader hears from figures often working at the very nucleus of bitter conflicts. Here are voices of peace and progress that dare to speak and act on behalf of a better planet.
An elegant tribute to the power of nonviolence and the heroes who wield it. Features tritone portrait photographs and powerful statements on peace from each of these 75 peacemakers. Michael Collopy, a world-renowned portrait photographer, lives in Hayward, California.
Includes Dr. C. Everett Koop, Thich Nhat Hanh, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Elie Wiesel, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Coretta Scott King, Robert Redford and more. Foreword by Walter Cronkite.
"Shares the stories of seventy-five brave men and women who've committed their lives to peace. Not your run-of-the-mill coffee-table book, this is a journal of candid revelations of personal activism that will inspire you to change your life, if not the world." - Mode magazine
