Through these 15 intimate conversations، Elise Boulding، an American Quaker، and Daisaku Ikeda، a Japanese Buddhist، reveal that while journeys in peace may build from vastly divergent locales and traditions، shared wisdom grows from an unwavering commitment to a better world. Throughout the book، they explore the dynamic qualities of peace cultures، including peace building as a continuum from the family to global institutions، the valuing of women’s contributions at all levels of society، and education as a holistic، lifelong process. Unique in their fresh connections between Buddhist humanism and a Quaker vision of peace، the conversations enable readers to understand peace and peacemaking not as abstract concepts، but as attitudes and practices that inform every aspect of human life.
Editorial Reviews “Coming from different traditions، Elise Boulding and Daisaku Ikeda share a profound commitment to peace and human welfare، to diversity and world citizenship، to open listening and dialogue، and to envisioning and building a better future. In a flowing dialogue، they build on each other’s experiences and ideas to produce valuable insights for creating peace cultures.” —Herbert Kelman، Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics، emeritus، Harvard University
