In the new millennium, humanity is situated at a critical crossroads. While there are many hopeful signs of cross-cultural engagement and democratic dialogue, the challenges of warfare and injustice continue to plague nations and communities around the globe. Against this backdrop, there exists a powerful mechanism for transforming crises into opportunities: the philosophy and practice of nonviolence. Sometimes mischaracterized as a form of passivity or inaction, nonviolence has been and remains a proactive force for positive change in a wide range of contexts, from education and ethics to peacekeeping and politics. The experts brought together in this volume collectively deploy the essential teachings of nonviolence across a spectrum of contemporary issues. From considering the principles of the French Revolution and encouraging peace through natural resource management to exploring multiculturalism and teaching peace in the elementary classroom, this work is broad in scope yet detailed in its approach to the fundamental principles of nonviolence.
