KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled: Writings by the Great Advocates of Peace and Nonviolence throughout History. Ranging from Gandhian satyagraha to the implementation of its principles by Negro leaders in this country; from Pope John XIII's passionate plea for peace to Bertrand Russell's ""ban the bomb"" activities; from the sacred writings of all the major oriental and occidental faiths; from major philosophers, theologians and novelists writing today; and from politicians throughout the ages; this is a very complete culling of pronouncements on peaceful as against warlike behavior. (Appropriately enough, its publication date is the same as what used to be called Armistice Day.) The book provides the thought-provoking quotes for those involved in various peace and integration movements. It will be an excellent idea book for student debaters. Exact source information and full bibliography is planned as well as a selected reading list. Equally at home on reference or circulating shelves.
