Readable if you have a time for peace. This book is hope for those millions who want justice, peace, equality and freedom for every person of this planet.

This book was put together by the founders of CodePink, a women's peace group that sprung up before the Iraq war started: http://www.codepinkalert.org/[return]... about 75 pages into it so far and loving it, so I bought this extra copy to share. It offers up a lot of food for thought, including ideas for moving from a "dominator" model in our society to a more democratic "partnership" model, how to educate your children in peacebuilding, and so on.

Recommends it for: anti-war, activitsts
B+ An excellent overview of the antiwar movement; unfortunately, a lot of the stuff is familiar and in no way unique, and seems to be a bit of a soapbox for Code Pink

Total self promotion. We feel this was effective because it did stop the war that was waiting to happen.
