You are invited to a celebration of the global peace movement and a discussion with some of its leading voices. This special event launches the recent publication of Peace Movements Worldwide http://www.abc-clio.com/product.aspx?id=52335, a three-volume anthology with chapters covering insights and action from every continent. The 80 contributors combine multidisciplinary insights with accounts of courageous and creative actions, ranging from the personal to the global. Co-editors, UC Emeriti professors and scholar activists, Marc Pilisuk http://www.marcpilisuk.com/ and Michael Nagler http://www.michaelnagler.net/ will be joined by other contributors to read excerpts from their chapters and discuss what they’ve learned in this in-depth survey of the global peace movement.
