Dear Ahed is a collection of radical, compassionate essays interspersed with letters to a Palestinian, Ahed Hussein, who has suffered greatly from the effects of war. The author, who has spent much... More > time in the conflict areas of the world, demonstrates that through education and understanding the way words are used, a society could be created free from war. Alberto Portugheis, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2008, explores how and why language is used to separate societies, control and antagonize people.

The book is dedicated to Ahed Hussein and to all people who are seeking Peace and Truth. This is the Peace Proposal the World is waiting for.< Less

In this anthology, writers share their intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East, experiences with the principal actors and address sensitive political issues that examine America's legacy... More > in that region. Most authors in this anthology agree that the interactions between peoples of different civilizations are increasing and these interactions intensify civilization's consciousness and inter-cultural awareness. The book also illustrates how religion fuels war and bigotry. Neither the violence of terrorists, nor the might of armies can ever succeed in imposing the will of the mighty upon the weak. Those of us who have been involved in this struggle know fully well that methods of achieving peace are varied. The collection of essays put forward by Waris Shere shows how wide ranging the ideas that are being promoted in today's troubled world. This timely collection of essays by a stunning cast of thinkers could not be more relevant.< Less
